Much like track 7, track 10 appears to be non-linear in the film.
Luke says the title of this track 24 minutes into the film (with no musical underscoring), yet it's placed in between tracks 09 (heard 55 minutes into the film) and 11 (heard 66 minutes in).
That “who are you” scene does feature music (that, as far as I can tell, is not included on the soundtrack) both before and after the title question.
Immediately before, as Rey explores the Jedi texts, we hear a lonely english horn with a sustained pedal in the low strings.
And immediately after we hear the 1st and 2nd phrases of the force theme played quietly by a horn after Rey says, “Something inside me...”. There are also some poignant strings as Luke says, “it's time for the jedi to die...” and somber brass as the scene shifts from Luke and Rey to Leia, right before she demotes Poe.
Okay, so where does this music appear in the film? I have no idea...
0:13-0:23 Rey's melody, cello, a minor, 1st phrase only
1:16-1:27 Ren's Brooding motive harmonized, bass clarinet
2:10-2:13 hints of the Rebel Fanfare
2:25-2:32 Main theme, horn, loudly, G major, 1st phrase only
2:54-3:03 hints of Ren's power/wannabe theme (descending minor second), horn
