    Default Could this be Brahms?

    I've been trying to figure out a piece which has been stuck in my head since I was a kid, more or less.
    It sounds pretty baroque as far as I remember with the following:
    – It starts with a string section
    – Then a clarinet, oboe or similar joins in after the first few notes
    – No vocals as far as I know

    It could be Händel as well I suppose. I'm not much of a whistler but this is the main setup:https://soundcloud.com/simon-hessler/brahms

    By the sound of it, I'm not sure that it's Baroque at all, but then again, perhaps I have misinterpreted the whistling!!

    Dd you hear this in a recording, or in a show, etc.?

    No, you might of course be just right about that. It might not be baroque. My whistling can not do the piece justice but perhaps you get the basic notes of it. In terms of rythm etc it's not very far from Händels works such as this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8Wahxcg8ro or this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUCdkFscvN8. A bit royal-ish if that is a word one might use to describe it.

    I heard the recording surely twenty years ago when I was a child. It was used as an intro to a tape-recording of a reading of Robin Hood in Swedish. So chances are not very many people have heard that particular recording.

    It could easily be one of Handel's works "tweaked" quite a bit so that they wouldn't have to deal with the issues of using someone else's music in their reading....
