Need Help Identifying Old Piano Song
October 8, 2014 8:27 AM   Subscribe

I am working on a documentary and recorded one of the participants playing an old piano song. I can't get in touch with her anymore, and I might need to get clearance for the song if I decide to use it. It is an old tune. Anyone know what it might be? Listen to it here.

Sounds a bit like the Adagio from Mozart's clarinet concerto.

Response by poster: Those first few bars are quite similar. Absolutely. Not it though. I didn't include the second half of the piece she played which veers away from Adagio. Good ears though! Nice piece.

What you posted sounds more to me like noodling around over a chord progression than anything else. Does the melody do anything in the second half that's different from the repetition of a descending scale which comprises the first half?
