Good Morning,

Do we have any folks knowledgeable in classical music? For some time now I've been desperately trying to identify a particular piece. I received it from someone who'd recorded it - thus no performer or composer information was included. It's very lively and seems to be String-only (likely a quintet if not full orchestra).

I posed this question on About.com in this thread.

Thanks in advance.

@Khethil,
I immediately thought about one of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto's. Could it be this one?

YouTube - Bach - Brandenburg Concertos No.3 - i: Allegro Moderato

What do you think?

@Khethil,
Thanks Catch,

No, that's not it. But a darn good one - I LOVE Bach's concertos (and nearly all the Brandenburg series rock). The other one; this elusive, skulking one I can't find is very close to the same style.

Appreciate the effort!

@Khethil,
Definitely baroque, and it sounds a lot more like Vivaldi than Bach.

Thanks - quite possibly. I'll wade through his.

@Khethil,
Try listening to either Fall or Spring from the Four Seasons (they are the major key ones -- it's definitely not Summer). He has all sorts of violin concertos as well.
