    I've loved this song since I first heard it on the Concert in Central Park.

    From Wikipedia: "The song, on the album, features a one minute classical piece by the composer Phillip Glass, for strings, clarinet, and flute, in his own style of polytonality of repeated musical phrases, in the key of A minor, in order to depict the mood of the sadness involved in the song, abruptly stopping the repetition to end the song." Closing Composed & Orchestrated by Phillip Glass. Conducted by Michael Riesman. Michael Riesman: Syntesizer. Carol Wincenc: Flute. George Marge: Bass Clarinet. Martin Alsop: Violin. Frederick Zlotkin: Cello. Jill Jaffe: Viola.
