What is the piece of piano music opening this film?

I recently posted a documentary about the pianist Sviatoslav Richter and have been wondering what the piece is that opens it. I suspect Schubert but haven't found the exact piece if so. If you happen to know something like Shazam that works for classical music (Shazam often doesn't), that would be great too. Thanks!

Is it possible to find lead sheet music for Pachelbel's Canon?

I'm trying to learn to play the piano, and right now I'm using this book by Scott Houston, who is a huge advocate of lead sheet music and "fake" books. I really, really like the book, and even after just sitting down for a little bit I can already play some basic stuff like row, row, row your boat and jingle bells. However, there is one snag: the book's philosophy is that you should think of the one song you would most like to play on the piano and learn how to play by starting with that song first, an idea which I really love except for the fact that the one song I would really like to play more than anything else is Pachelbel's Canon in D. He specifically says in the book that his teaching method is completely unsuited for learning classical piano. I really don't want to learn how to play classical piano except for this one song, but this is one song I would really like to learn. Is there any way around this?

Movie title about moving a piano

Movie title filter. I need help remembering a title. In the movie, there's a scene where a group of people moved a grand piano over difficult terrain. Possibly a combination of forest (or jungle) and mountain. It might have been South America or Africa. There might have been missionaries, or a church, in the story, but I'm not sure. There might have been a building made of glass in the jungle, but I may be confusing that with another movie. [more inside]

Does this piano software exist?

When I learned to touch type, I used software where the letters appeared and did not go until I had pressed the right key.
