    Default Ren & Stimpy Classical Music Question

    Hey all, I operate a blog with the purpose of identifying the stock music tracks used in Ren & Stimpy: http://renandstimpymusic.blogspot.com/ . As you may know, the show used a lot of classical music for its soundtrack. I've identified most of them, but one track still eludes me. It plays in the episode "Dinner Party" when Stimpy is preparing the soup. Here's a sound clip of the scene.

    It sounds like a divertimento that Mozart would compose, but I'm not 100% sure. Anybody know what the name of this piece is? Any help would be most appreciated.

    Sorry I can't help, but I have to congratulate you on the blog! I always admired the range of music used in Ren and Stimpy when I used to watch it as a child, but I never appreciated just how much of it there was...

    It is the third movement of the Wind Quintet in E minor Op 67 No 2 by Franz Danzi.

    You are awesome. Thanks for solving a long-standing mystery for me. (Incidentally, no wonder I couldn't find this song on the APM site; doing a search for "Danzi" only gives two results, and neither of them are this song) I credited you in my latest blog post!

    Apologies for the double post, but I thought of another song that I haven't identified. It's heard in the episode "A Yard Too Far", and also the unrelated Sledgehammer O'Possum short "What's Going On Back There?", which this sound clip is from. ("What's Going On Back There?" used some classical music tracks, which leads me to believe it's also a classical track)

    Any help on this one?

    This one is the famous aria "Caro Nome' from Rigoletto by Verdi.

    Ah, I suspected it was something classical. Thanks! Another track I've been wondering about for a long time, answered in short order. Fantastic.

    Here are a couple other mysteries. They're not very long clips, but hopefully it's enough to identify them. They might not even be classical pieces at all, but I wanted to know for sure.

    Song 1
    Song 2
    Song 3
