What was the piece playing at 8:30? It was lovely too, and I've been waiting to find out what it was. Thanks.

I heard a lovely orchestral piece ending around 9.30. Rich with just an interesting level of discord, and a kind of sliding quality which recurred over and again, especially in the flute parts. Does anyone know what it is? Couldn't tell from the listing.

Thanks in advance
