Yo-Yo Ma/Tan Dun: "Eternal Vow".


This may be just me, but I find that film directors often leave the most remarkable of the musical score for the last scene and ending credits.

Ang Lee's 2000 "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" is a case in point. Starring Chow Yun-fat, the magnificent Michelle Yeoh, and Zhang Ziyi, its superb music score was composed by Tan Dun.

This is the final scene and credits and the cello solo performed by Yo-Yo Ma ("Eternal Vow"):



Update (13/12/2014):
Another version (in some ways, better; but you won't see a beautiful fallen angel flying into eternity):
