Many thanks.
Sorry for my complete ignorance but I enjoy most of the popular classics.
Anyone any favs I might download?
Don't really know what you're into but if you like piano music you should download "big my secret" by Micheal Nyman.It's an amazing piece! one of my favourites to play! Or if you fancy something a little heavier you should try Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique Fouth movement! let me know what you think

Michael Nyman's pieces all sound so similar. I suppose it really depends on whether or not you like his 'sound.'

Elgar(?) in background


I'm not sure this is going to work, but if anyone can access the file pointed to by this link, can you identify the clip playing in the background of the Ralph and Ted sketch?

What's this music?

For the last 3-4 years the FAI play some classical music as Ireland and the opposing team come on to the pitch at Lansdowne Road for senior soccer matches. Does anybody know what it is?

OK. I'm looking for a classical piano piece that I heard years ago on an episode of, ehem*, Tom and Jerry. OK, yeah yeah, I know. But does anybody know what I'm on about? Tom (the cat) was basically playing this piece at a concert, and Jerry (the mouse) was just trying to piss him off while doing his performance.

Does anyone know the piece I'm looking for?

The piece that Marty Mart is talking about might be by Death in Vegas, off the Scorpio Rising album. Also used on the Lost in Translation soundtrack. I think its on an ESB ad, not ESB, although that might be a typo.

Some of you may hear this sometime and wonder what it is.

It's Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor by Borodin and it's lovely.

Did anyone here watch the BBC2 programme "Auchswitz"? It was on during their Holocaust Memorial series. Anyway there was a piece of classical music playing throughout the programme, violin and piano. It was amazingly good, so if anyne knows what it was, it would be VERY helpful if yu let me know!

How's it goin' maestros

Howya. I'm new to this but I thought I'd just let you know-

Whoever is looking for Nyman's "The Piano" soundtrack; better to actually buy a Naxos recording (like 8 quid or something, really cheap) of 'The Piano Concerto' by Nyman. It's a re-hashing of all the music from the movie, so its even better.

Regarding tunes you hear in ads-I bet everybody's familiar with Prokofiev's "Dance of the Knights" from his ballet Romeo&Juliet (but nobody knows what its called etc). Its always in ads for perfume and that. Check it out and such.
