Might help if you could say more about the rhythm, or where the beats are, or anything.
Or even just, is it slow? fast?

Maybe someone can solve it 'as is,' but that would be darn good. smile

Which part - the beginning? And are you sure it's by Beethoven?

I wondered both too.

If we had more info, we'd have a better chance to guess even if some of it isn't right.

Itay: Anything more you can tell us about the piece will help.

.....just in case this isn't by Beethoven.....

Story about a time I and my extremely knowledgeable ha buddies mistook something for Beethoven -- right here.


BTW, composers that those notes would have suggested to me:

#1 Bach
#2 Chopin
#3 Beethoven
#4 Brahms

The first one gave me zero.

The second gave me mostly non-classical even though I specified "classical" and it said "classical."
But BTW most of the classical things it gave were Beethoven, although none of them really resembled what we've got here.

I have a feeling the OP gave the wrong notes. Beethoven doesn't do A minor very often.

But those sites are fun when they come up with crazy titles I've never heard of. I guess there are only so many permutations of letters when you don't take into account the register, rhythm, or tempo.

I wouldn't consider that "the wrong notes." I never assumed it was being given in the exact key, nor that the OP was trying to do that. I actually consider it sort of standard to give 'unknown' melodies in C major or minor (which is what the "Dictionary of Musical Themes" does) or A minor.

Here you go:


2nd movement of Beethoven's 3rd Cello Sonata. And it IS in a minor.

MarkH, thanx but sorry, its not that,
it isn't a sonata, its small piece, and for solo piano.

Two questions :

1) Why are you sure this snippet is by Beethoven?

2) Where/How did you first hear this?

This is interesting.

MarkH's example seemed pretty darn close.

Itay, can we ask: Where do you think you got it, and how do you know it's exactly that? (Or at least very close.) I think we've all had instances where we've misremembered a melody, in varying degrees. For example, a while back, I asked about a phrase that was stuck in my mind, and I was pretty sure I had it right but in fact I had one of the harmonies wrong. (Beet314 was able to give the answer anyway.)


(I see that Bruce was posting similarly....)

'Just in case' it's not Beethoven anyway.... grin

Other composers it sounds like:

Mendelssohn
Saint-Saens

I'm latching on to a Bagatelle, but I have no idea which one. It just sounds like it might be one. Probably not by Beethoven, though, since I don't think he wrote any in A-minor. Any of the experts have a clue?

I can tell you I've never seen or heard this piece before based on the OP's rendition of the notes they remember.

OP- do you no longer have the sheet music for it anywhere in the house? Do you remember if you played it out of a book, or off a photocopy? (Book would be better.. I'd ask if you remember what book?)

Remember, he never said it was in that key. (And even if it was given in A minor in that study book, it wouldn't mean much.)

A couple of other posters took the key sort of seriously, and I think that's a mistake with things like this, including because often there is no attempt or intent to duplicate the actual key -- including in reference books.

[...]


I did go through all of the Beethoven "Bagatellen" not searching for A minor but searching for the theme as posted by the OP, but did not find anything resembling the theme he played. Won't I be embarrassed if it turns out to be a Bagatelle?

I don't think you'd be the first one here to be embarrassed. grin


BTW, looking up those notes in "Dictionary of Musical Themes" (transposed to C minor, as is needed), the closest examples are by Vivaldi and Frescobaldi. I don't mean I think it's by one of them -- those examples clearly aren't it. Just sayin'. smile

By the way, IMSLP also has a melody search engine if you want to try (these search engines are not very good though, I think they only work for easy pieces)..

I think we need stores. He might know (although I am really not sure it is Beethoven).

A piece of Beethoven? I think there are still some locks of his hair out there.


Slow down and do it right.
