That's "Peer Gynt's Homecoming" from Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite No. 2, Op. 55 ( The first two chords (played by the wind instruments), however, are derived from the same piece's coda (

Starting at 0:23, they switch to "Dance of the Little Swans" from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake (

Hi everyone!

I stumbled upon this trailer for Much Ado About Nothing:

I know the piece in the first 30 seconds, but I cannot recall the name.

My best guesses would be Mendelssohn or Wagner. In fact, it is a bit similar to the ouverture of Der Fliegende Holländer, but that's not it. The high piccolo also reminded my of the tempest-part from Beethoven's 6th, but no. I listened through hours of music and asked two friends at the opera, but I still haven't found it. Please help!

Thanks so much!

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
