The gun and the piano

Sunday evening, action movie. Jason Statham’s new “let’s blow everybody up” movie, The Mechanic, held a very pleasant musical surprise. I don’t recall the exact moment in the movie when I heard the song but those first notes of the piano captivated me and made me wonder who the composer was. With a little help from a friend, I was able to listen to both the version of the song that appears in the movie and the original, composed by none other than Franz Schubert. I decided to post them both and I must admit my favorite is the latter, as I find the song in the movie a little too bare, though pleasant nevertheless.
