I was watching Frozen II at the cinemas the other day, and I was listening to some of the background music, and I'm pretty sure that I heard Franz Liszt's 12th Transcendental Etude in some of it. It was especially prominent in the scene where (SPOILER)

Elsa was putting out the magical fire in the forest with her ice powers

but I can't find the scene online in order to confirm my thoughts yet. If anyone could be able to help it would be appreciated.

I guess you're referring to this scene -?

I'm quite sure it's not Franz Liszt's Transcendental Etude No. 12. It's a bit difficult to make out the background score completely with all the other sounds, but it sounds very different to my ears.


From the comment below by the OP:

Yeah, it's not exactly the same; though it uses the same Db C Bb A pattern (likely in a different key) and similar melodic contours throughout the background. The dynamics and articulations are completely different however.

    Ayy! That is the scene. Yeah, it's not exactly the same; though it uses the same Db C Bb A pattern (likely in a different key) and similar melodic contours throughout the background. The dynamics and articulations are completely different however. Thank you. – L. McDonald May 26 at 6:38

    Yeah, that's fine. And the Transcendental Etudes are such a great set of pieces, I'm glad to be able to introduce them to you :) – L. McDonald May 26 at 12:35
