    Sounds sort of like Schubert to me. But why did you call it a "song"??? It does not have any words in it. It is a piece of chamber music...

    a kind of song without words, or ‘Romance without words’ or ‘romance sans paroles’ in French (by the way, romance does not mean Romantic friendship or love affair in French, but sentimental song. But this piece of music is too sad for such a sentimental song, in my opinion.)

    If you like crying, There are many other works like this:

    Rachmaninov

    Chopin:

    Chopins' nocturne (cello and piano!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLnOp...eature=related

    Boccherini:

    Thanks for sharing the links Alnitak. I have started a site to collect sad classical music pieces - you can check it out at http://www.sadclassicalmusic.com if you are interested.

    I might add some of the links you suggested to my list. The site is pretty basic at the moment but I am hoping to build it into something a lot more expansive over time.

    Thanks again for the links,

    It could be a Bottesini work for 2 double basses & piano, such as Passione Amoroso which can be
    found on Youtube (Part II, especially). Haven´t listened through the pieces, though, since they are
    not very much in my taste. It could also be an arrangement of a song or another popular piece, say, by Schubert.

    Sorry, got it wrong, there seems to be only one double bass.
    Then there are many more possibilities ...

    Sorry, I just had to laugh at one of the comments.

    In case you referred to mine: It WAS a rather voluminous string tone ...
