Hannibal Lecter kills the two cop guards that watch him while he is in that cage towards the end. There is some classical music he is listening to after he murders them...
See here? Looks like it might be an original score by Howard Shore (you can hear some samples here).. Course that doesn't mean it's not a separate piece that isn't included on the cd since it's not an original composition.. so maybe someone else has better info.
Looking at the soundtrack listing at, I'm guessing the song is "Goldberg Variations", performed by Jerry Zimmerman, written by Johann Sebastian Bach. (Google search implies that Lector listens to Bach in all the movies/books.) Not sure beyond that, maybe listening to a few samples
this CD at Amazon will help? Don't think this piece of music appears on the Silence of the Lambs soundtrack.
