    Default Where is this melody from?

    Hello to all,
    I have been toying with an idea for an accompanying melody to a song I am writing, and I am 90% sure that it is based on a Classical melody, but I'm having some trouble figuring out what it is. At first I thought it was from Rachmaninoff's second concerto but I now sure I was wrong.

    The motiff that it is based on is really simple and in waltz time (I'm using it in D):

    da-da-da-Daaaa---Da-Da (A-D-F#-G---F#-F#)

    I hope from this, you can get the jist of the melody and that someone can tell me where it comes from?
    Thank you for your time everybody.
