    Default Looking For Help Identifying a Piece

    First time posting here, please don't hesitate to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

    The piece in question is attached, 20 seconds of something that piqued my interest and I'd love to know what it is. Soundhound and Shazam have failed me, figured I should try the professionals.

    Secondarily, and regardless of being able to identify it or not, if you happen to have any suggestions for me that are similar to the attachment I'd be very curious to check them out.

    Thanks in advance. -Mike

    This music has been asked about here before. The clip was a little longer and you could hear a flute soloist. It's a little hard to search for that thread, but I'm pretty sure it was never identified.. There's something about it that makes me suspect it's actually a modern composition mostly inspired by a sort of straight-forward Italian baroque style à la people like Torelli, Manfredini etc, but there are elements that doesn't fit this style completely. Maybe for a tv show or something. But it's not so obvious I feel like I can rule out it being a 18th century work 100%. Where did you get the clip in the first place?

    Maybe you'll enjoy some of these:

    Thank you so much for the thoughtful response, Norse. I think I've found the section you refer to with the flute solo, attached here. Both short clips I found on an audiobook lecture by David Allen (author of GTD), but no credits assigned at least on the version I have.

    I'm going to check out the links you suggested and excited about it. My main reason for looking into this was in the spirit of keeping a better, clearer head while I work at home - and the clip I posted had a certain appeal to me, full of pep but it was clean enough so as to not be terribly distracting. Clean but not generic, at least to my untrained ears.

    On that note, your thought process in musing about where and when it came from is genuinely fascinating to me. 2013 might need to be the year I step outside my comfort zone of mainstream music and bump up my cursory understanding of classical (or baroque??)... I have a ways to go. Thank you for you time on this.

    Listening to your second clip, I get the same feeling as from the first one. It sounds like a modern, but fairly successful emulation of a sort of 'hybrid' 18th century style. If I'm correct about this, it's unlikely that anyone will recognize it, and your best bet of figuring it out is probably just to try and get information surrounding the audiobook. Not sure how easy that is.

    On the other side, you have now discovered this wonderful forum which contains all sorts of recommendations for your venture into classical music.
