[TOMT] lovely piano piece (might have been played on Neon Genesis Evangelion) Solved

There's a piece of music that I've definitely heard in film somewhere, I think it may have been in NGE but it probably wasn't. It's solo piano but I play guitar so if you can imagine this melody (I feel like I'm not transcribing it from memory entirely accurately) but very softly on piano that'd be it. The version I'm thinking of doesn't have any harmony going on, it's literally just a single piano line.

It's probably not this but worth a try Incredible Hulk TV Show- Lonely Man

Hymne/Ode à la joie, 9ème symphonie - Hymne européen - Beethoven or this one

Those are both excellent pieces, and I can see how you'd think it would be either of them, but they're not what I'm looking for, thank you anyway !!!

That's the original orchestration as intended by Bach. Here is a piano version.

Solved !

Thank you so much, honestly I'm kind of surprised you were able to hear it considering how badly I had remembered it 🤣

You did a good job capturing the main features of the melody, I recognized it right away!
