Rhythm: There are no specific rhythm instruments but at some points the rhythm is kept by the pianos left hand but other times it is what I would call free flowing. Harmony: Played by the Violin Orchestra. Instruments used: Piano and Violin Orchestra. Melody: Throughout the song the melody is mostly played by the right hand of the piano But towards the end it changes and a Violin from the violin orchestra plays the melody. Dynamics: Throughout most of the song the violin orchestra is very soft long notes, the piano was the instrument more focused on so it was louder but mostly the right hand as it played the melody, it had a soft left hand playing variations of chords.

I would call Alexandre Desplat Customer Orientated.
