    Default Need Help IDing a Classical Piece - Link provided

    I've been looking for the name of this piece for roughly 8 or so years. I head it on the radio the other day but never heard the DJ mention the name or composer (I must have missed it). Anyway, of all places, I heard it again on a youtube video entitled "funny cats". I have included the link below. Can anyone ID this song for me. I would really appreciate it. Thanks,

    Dean

    I may have been off on this one. This youtube song sounds very much like the piece I want but the piece I had in mind is much less comical - more of a waltz perhaps.

    It is "The Thieving Magpie" by Gioacchino Rossini.

    Specifically, the Overture to "The Thieving Magpie"

    I could be totally off, but if the piece you have in mind is more of a waltz than what is being played, I'm wondering if perhaps you are looking for "The Blue Danube Waltz" by Johann Strauss II?

    I don't think it was either. This one was a bit choppy in the intro and really got heavy as it progressed. Very much like the one in the video link but more somber.

    Nope. None of those pieces. It was more like the piece from the youtube video but more serious. I'm really at a loss now. It was VERY similar to the youtube track but not as "playful". Is there anyway I could record a wav file to this forum, because I have the song in my head and I can kind of hum it. I'm sure someone would be able to help me if they heard it. It starts off very choppy - almost as if someone was tip-toeing quietly and then this is followed by a violin. This is repeated several times and eventually, the piece reaches a major crescendo - a very loud clashing and almost victorious ending to a piece that starts out very nimble.

    This is really silly but it's all I can think of for now. The song begins something like this: Day Nay Nay Nay Day Day (Stop)..Day Nay Nay Nay Day Day (Stop)..(next part played by violin and is faster) Nay nay nay nay..Nay nay nay nay. Day Daaay (hold this note) Nay nay nay nay (repeat entire intro once more)

    Nope. But I had a feeling someone was going to point me in that direction. I can understand why being that this song from the Nutcracker also starts off as though someone or something was tip-toeing. However, the song I'm thinking of is more of ballroom song - at least I think of dancing on a ballroom floor - I'm pretty sure it's a waltz.

    Cerberus, did you ever come up with the tune? If not some of us are still anxiously awaiting that wav file of your humming
