After the "mood music" stops playing and the theme of Honor Hold starts, I know I had heard that theme before. Took me a few days but I realized what it was -
Chopin Nocturne: No. 7 In C Sharp Minor, Op. 27 No.1
If you have doubts, listen to the Honor Hold music until the "b" section starts ( for music theory savy people ). You will hear the difference when it starts because of the instrumentation ( beginning is all strings, the Chopin part is all brass and woodwinds )
After you listen, go to
scroll down to where you see the sample play for
Nocturne No. 7 In C Sharp Minor, Op. 27 No.1
You will hear the theme they ripped VERBATIM at 40 seconds into the sample.
Note to anyone that responds and tries to deny/disprove my findings....... don't even try. I am a graduate of the Eastman School of Music in Piano Performance and you won't stand a chance.
My question to Blizzard is.....
Why clearly rip a melody from one of the all time greatest romantic composers and not give the guy any credit?
Tekas is curious of your thoughts, thanks for playing.
