Today’s cue is the second in a two-part series: Last week we set the stage at the Mosfilm Studios in Saint Petersburg, where Amazing Race 17 teams had to find the correct filmstrip for the Sergei Eisenstein film October. As teams struggled with this event, the music needed to reflect that tension, as well as alluding to Eisenstein’s film history. The cue above references Prokofiev’s “Battle on the Ice” cue from the score to Alexander Nevsky, perhaps Eisenstein’s best-known work. It fits the bill both historically and dramatically, and was extremely fun to write (always a bonus).
