Grant Kirkhope ft. Rimsky-Korsakov

Youtube autoplayed Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov the other day - I hadn’t listened to it all the way through before, but I’d heard the opening a few times. This motif (played by the clarinet) caught my attention though.

You hear it scattered throughout the Angry Aztec level in Donkey Kong 64.

Pretty neat to tune in on the influences of composers. It’s also pretty neat if this happened by chance too.
