Song of the Day #185

Song of the Day: Madame Bovary ("Waltz") [audio clip at that link], music by Miklos Rozsa, was composed for the Vincente Minnelli-directed 1949 film version of the Gustave Flaubert novel, starring Jennifer Jones. This swirling, romantic piece was inspired by Flaubert's descriptions of the waltz, which Minnelli captures perfectly in this key scene.
