    Default Musical Guessing Game

    I thought of reviving the old thread, but am not going to bother to find it, since it's been so long since it's been active.

    Objective:
    To guess the title, movement/part (if applicable), and composer/artist/author of the piece that the person before you posts.

    Rules:

    1) Provide an image (or .pdf, just make sure it's easily accessible) of an excerpt of the sheet music and/or lyrics of the piece. If desired, put in a hint or two with the image.
    2) DO NOT post copyrighted MP3s. Any other sound form is allowed (as long as the title is not easily exposed).

    ------

    I will start with this:
    Spoiler:





    Hints:

    1) Note the language.
    2) It's written for solo piano.

    Looks like Debussy to me. What piece is... one I do not know yet.

    Edit:

    Ok, I found it after a little research in my stuffs, it's from the second set of Debussy's preludes. The prelude is Bruyeres.

    I will post the next piece in this post soon.

    Right when I saw that it was a fast violin etude, I thought "Paganini" - but I'm still looking for the specific one. xP

    Ugh - I really need to stop guessing. I stare at it and I think Wagner, if not him, Tchaikovsky.

    It's Tchaikovsky. But what piece? ;)

    Hints:

    - Year 1888.
    - The piece is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in A, 2 bassoons, 4 horns in F, 2 trumpets in A, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings.

    I knew it was one of his symphonies! Symphony No. 5 - 2nd Movement by Tchaikovsky. (What's interesting is that I haven't even seen this score nor have heard this movement before, so I wonder how I thought of Tchaikovsky when I saw this.) I haven't heard past the clarinet soli in the first movement of this symphony.

    EDIT:



    Hints:

    1) This piece is one of the few works for *orchestral winds* in the 19th Century. (Composed in 1826.)
    2) This piece is an overture.
    3) The only recording that's worth listening to that you can find online is of the London Symphony Orchestra winds.
    4) There is an arrangement that exists of this for wind band.
    5) This composer is probably one of the best known prodigies in music history. (No, it's not Mozart.)

    That was composed by Mendelssohn (Did I type it correctly? lol). Overture in C major for wind instruments Op. 24

    Edit:



    Hints:

    - It's written for piano
    - Is not an easy piece to play.
