In the short film entitled, "The Lady in Number 6" (available on NetFlix), there is a gentle piano piece being played in the background starting at about 12:10. Does anyone know what piece this is?

Thanks

...do you have a link to something other than NetFlix (i.e., that's only available in certain parts of the world)?

Don't know, but it sounds like it's in b minor, so does that help anybody?

I tried to find a link on YouTube but I only found some trailers and small clips of the film there.

It also kind of sounds like ambiance, and the film does have a composer, so it's possible it's not really anything but a little motif for background mood setting.

Damn, you're right!

I think I need my Schumann Fan Club membership card confiscated.

Good call.

(Before I listened to the audio, I didn't know offhand what "15/12" was.)

Next-to-last movement of Scenes from Childhood (Kinderszenen), "Child Falling Asleep" (Kind im Einschlummern).

BTW, I think that in general Schumann's works aren't commonly known by their opus numbers to the extent of some other composers. A few of his works are, somewhat -- Carnaval, Kreisleriana, and the Fantasy, maybe Arabeske a little bit but really I can never keep straight without thinking about it for moment which is Op. 18 or 19 between Arabeske and Blumenstuck -- and I think that's about it. Like, how many people know the opus number even of Fantasiestucke? I sure don't. I 'sort of' know that Kinderszenen is Op. 15 -- like, I would have gotten it on a multiple-choice grin but it's identified mostly just by the name, and I think so are most of his works.

And I think it's a good guess that the reason for this is that most of Schumann's works have unique titles -- he didn't write 15 of this or 55 of that -- so all you 'need' is the title, and the usage mostly has followed. (Never realized this before, never thought of it.)

I only knew the associated opus numbers because we recently had a discussion about 15, 16, 18, and 68. Well, I knew 68 and 18 offhand. Ok, and Opus 15 comes right before Op. 68 in my book from which I'm playing 68. Hard not to notice they are the Kinderszenen!

But I certainly don't know Schumann by opus number in the same way I know other composers. I guess it's because he so helpfully gave us such descriptive names most of the time!

If any piece of music you are hearing at a given time is being played from a somewhat widely released recording (i.e someone has released it on CD or on iTunes), there are a number of Apps that will identify the piece and performer if you hold your phone where it can "hear" the music. This even works in noisy surroundings.

This will not, of course, work with live music, as the program functions by matching up sound patterns with archived recordings.

Probably the most common app to do this is Shazam.
