In the new Tarantino film DJANGO UNCHAINED - which I haven't seen yet and have yet to decide if I will - is the Goldsmith cue Nicaragua from UNDER FIRE played complete, including the opening celebratory moments, or just from the remaining synth and pipes moments of the rest of the cue?

The celebratory stuff at the beginning of the cue is not in the film. The cue start at about :42 'til the end.

The opening part is not in the movie... it picks up with the synth section you mentioned (which play under an especially brutal moment).

Thanks guys. I figured as much. I couldn't imagine many films these days being able to take such a euphoric moment of scoring.

I never saw the movie, but I just saw the scene with Goldsmith's music from UNDER FIRE and I don't think it works at all. I guess I'm just an old timer who saw UNDER FIRE in Theaters back in the day and I loved Goldsmith's music in that. The cue used in DJANGO is "NICARAQUA" which pretty much is his "Rebel March" Theme from UNDER FIRE. I just can't separate it from the images it evokes from UNDER FIRE and it seems just too Grand and too good for the scene in DJANGO. I can appreciate Tarantino's apparent love for the cue, but I just don't think it fits at all.

It's almost like putting Jerry's FIRST KNIGHT King Arthur music in say SHAFT IN AFRICA.

I would love to see Jerry Goldsmith's reaction to the use of his music in DJANGO. I don't think he would have been too happy, based on his reaction to Ridley Scott using some of his music from FREUD in ALIEN. Rest in Peace Maestro. You probably saw it from Heaven and I can imagine it was a very stormy day, full of thunder and lightning.
