The scene when they're in the bar, just before they leave for vietnam, there's an emotional piano instrumental. Its not on the soundtrack, so if you're looking for it, its by Frederic Chopin, called Nocturne Number 6, Opus 15-3, in g minor.

This album is simply excellent! Undoubtedly already enshrined in the pantheon of the all-time great film soundtracks, Deer Hunter's main theme, the distinguished John William's Cavatina, is magnificently touching, emotional and inescapably heartrending. I wonder why it wasn't awarded the Best score at the 1978 Oscars. The other tunes, the backups, complement Cavatina perfectly, capping off a tremendous album. One flaw though: the album should have included Frankie Valli's signature song, Can'T Take my Eyes Off You and I deducted 1 star for that.

After listening to this soundtrack, I finally realized what truly made The Deer Hunter movie so special. Sure, the story was riveting, and the actors were at their individual best in this Academy Award winning film, and the settings (both Vietnam AND the dirty, gray cold steel town) were so realistic.
But...
Watching the movie in the theater some 24 years ago, I now remember the beautiful music. The timely, sweet theme "Cavatina", the orthodox Catholic church hymns, and yes, even the Frankie Vallie "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" (missing from the sound track).
It's enough to make you just stop... and think about the lives of those innocent men and how their lives changed in a flash when they went to Vietnam.
Beautiful, touching and moving music, all part of one of the best motion pictures ever to see the silver screen. Even if you've never seen the movie, GET THIS CD... and go rent the movie, too!

All I can say is what a ripoff. I think this soundtrack runs less than 15 minutes--what a lost opportunity. Not only are the scores way too short--but the most two vital songs/socres--"I Love you Baby--not only at the tavern but also as part of the wedding festivals--and even more importantly, the score whose name I don't know--after the deer hunt and the most poignant moment in the films--the score in the tavern where a classical piece is played and all the boys go into the deepest moments of intimacy in the entire film--none of this is part of the sound track.

I love the film, looked forward to the soundtrack--and felt I (and others) were totally ripped off.

"Haunting"is the word for this soundtrack to a tragicaly beautiful movie about love and friendship,that's right,not war, it's about love for one another.That "BEAUTIFUL" piano piece is Chopin -Nocturne No.3 Op.15 in G.

What was the name of the song played on the piano in the bar, just before the movie changed places to Vietnam?

Captivated by the main theme of the "Deer Hunter". Very lovely and moving piece.
