    Default Please help me identify a piece for string orchestra in d flat major

    Does anybody know what the piece for string orchestra is that is played in the first 80 seconds of this video?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COB5mzr82cU

    Sorry for the bad attempt at comedy that is unfolding in the video.

    Even the not too common d flat major and the melody that seems to be a citation of Beethoven's 'Nimm sie hin denn diese Lieder' doesn't ring a bell for me.

    The second piece that is played later on in the clip is called 'The Ludlows' from James Horner's soundtrack for the movie 'Legends of the Fall'. Knowing this didn't help me identify the first piece though. It is not from that same soundtrack and does not sound like James Horner either.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I am searching with the help of musipedia. I think it's a 20th century soundtrack composer. Mmm maybe Morricone, it makes me think of Once Upon A Time in America. I'll let you know if I find it. (I'm not finding it sorry, I am still searching). Maybe you'd like to try yourself: https://www.musipedia.org/

    It's almost un hearable.

    If you stay with the video for a bit, there are a some good parts with music without talking. It's from the beginning of the video to about 80 seconds in.

    Thank you Amadea. I've searched as well with musipedia and can't find it either. Might be a hint that it is indeed 20th century film music. To me it doesn't sound like Morricone, but I can't say who else it could be.
