Background music from Mitchell & Webb

What is the background music used in the Mitchell & Webb "Inebriati" sketch, between around 2:01 and 5:00?. It sounds like Bartók or Stravinsky, but I can't quite place it.

Best answer: It is or at least is very similar to the third movement of Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta. Compare the middle section from the sketch (say, around 4:00) to this section of that Adagio.

Response by poster: I think you're right — even if it's an edited pastiche of the Adagio, it's definitely the piece that my mind was twigging on. Thanks!
