The exquisite music during the scene in which the exquisite Salome talks about John the Baptist's mouth is by Rimsky Korsakov. It's from Scheherazade, 3rd Movement.

Russell must have had a fondness for Rimsky Korsakov's "Scheherazade," for the music that Kevin (Chris Pitt) plays on his harmonica/mouth organ, the music that causes Lady Sylvia Marsh (Amanda Donohoe) to dance wildly, in Ken's "Lair of the White Worm," is also from Rimsky Korsakov's "Scheherazade."

Oh, it's pretty easy to find. Right after her dance when she asks Herod for the head of John the baptist and Ken's making the thunder.

Whiich scene has the Satie?  I am being lazy and not watching the film to find out.

When I remember Salome I don't remember any music.  I need to watch it again.

Music includes Debussy's 'Claire de Lune' for orchestra (however, I recommend finding a recording for piano).

Beside Grieg's 'In the Hall of the Mountain King,' from Peer Gynt, there is also 'Dance of the Mountain King's Daughter' which is heard over the opening of the play when John the Baptist is in the cage. You have to get the complete music for Peer Gynt (not just the suites).

I think there's also some music from Scriabin, but I'm not sure. Been a while since I've seen it, have to check it out now!

You can hear a brief excerpt of Eric Satie's "Trois Gymnopédies" (1st Movement).

I liked the soundtrack of Ken's 'Salome' very much. I'm not too familiar with classical composers (I only recognized the Grieg piece during the dance scene), but I'm eager to know which works of whom were used in the film. Can anyone help me?
