In the movie Schindler's List, a German officer is playing a piece in an apartment they are raiding. Two soldiers at the door are debating whether it's by Mozart. What is this piece?

chris_beecroft at on answers: … the Schindler's list question is the Prelude from Bach's English Suites (№ 2 ⦅A minor⦆) and not by Mozart (this is a recollection, I saw the film once a long time ago, but do recall thinking to myself why they chose that Bach piece.)

Schindler's List (1993), Bach or Mozart scene. Schindler's List
Ivo Pogorelich - Bach - English Suite No. 2 in A minor, BWV 807 Bach - English Suite No. 2

In the movie The Fly (1986), the first thing the scientist did when he invited the women journalist is to play a piano piece. What is it?

In the movie Sense and Sensibility (1995), a scene where an actress is told to play something more lively, but instead she played a piece that's more somber. What are they?
