Did anyone else notice a familiar piece of music when Pippa was telling Michael about going through her mother's things. It was played in "new style". I wonder if the "old style" music has completely died off yet?

What piece was it?

It was that piece only it was done in the new orchestrated style with strings. I don't think it worked very well. Sounded more spooky/suspenseful than sad. It may have worked with other pieces but I don't think it's ever tried again sadly.

Interesting. Wonder if the did that with any other older scores. Is the orchestral style in full swing now?  As these pieces aren't necessarily assigned to a certain character or storyline they are harder to identify or name. Some of them are so nice though.

All I can think of someone in an empty room of echoing "ghost" voice of bygone episodes  when I hear that.

Strings are a bit more in use (My Aunt likened it to Twin Peaks lol)

^ I have likened the early piano scores to Twin Peaks myself in the past. Both shows had very distinctive (and beautiful) piano music that created a unique "feel" to the town they were set in that was unlike anything else on TV.

It's a shame to lose that now, however I am looking forward to some of the impressive orchestral pieces coming up.

Speaking of which, I found the piece when Shane was racing to catch Angel before she got on the seaplane quite good. It was tense and dramatic and (as always) I wish a clean copy was available.

Just wondering about the piece of chamber music played when Donald is talking to Bobby when she's in a coma. 

Does anyone know if it was a really piece or written by Mike Perjanik for the show?

Episode 1715 before the plane crash. In the scene where Alf and Alsa say goodbye before she leaves for her treatment with the specialist. Is this the final time we ever hear the old-style music underscore in Home And Away?

Alsa is leaving for a holiday from Alf (1715)
