Clint and Rachmaninoff

Clint Eastwood directs a new movie, "The Mule" for release late this year.

And he uses Rachmaninoff for the theme music--the Paganini Rhapsody.  If you know that piece, you know that Rachmaninoff used the opening motif of the Requiem Mass' Gregorian Chant Dies Irae as one of the themes in that Rhapsody.

Knowing Eastwood, that's not co-incidence.
