and now for something completely different...

many of you may recognize this little snippet, but how many of you know what it is?

i for one, dont. its incredibly familiar, it could be a disney or a warner brothers score, or it could be a classic piece that they used in some context. i've already churned though carl stallings complete works (or as many as i could find and this doesnt seem to be one of his..._

i come here, to the fine dvinfo forums to seek your assistance.

Yeah, I've heard this. Back in the early 90's I had Microsoft Musical Instruments and when you selected the English Horn (woodwind) and listened to it, this is the diddy that they played for the example.

Why I remember this and not the song is a mystery to me.... oh yeah, they always played it in Looney Toons during "morning" scenes.

That would be Edvard Grieg's "Morning" from Peer Gynt. Peer Gynt Suite Op.46 No.1 to be exact.

"The overture to the opera Guglielmo Tell (William Tell, 1829) by Italian composer Gioacchino Rossini features a solo passage on the English horn... In the overture the instrument plays a shepherd’s call to his cattle, establishing the pastoral setting of a Switzerland about to be liberated from foreign occupation by legendary hero William Tell."

There is a sound byte on this site too:

Which came first? I definitely recognize it as Rossini.

Gioachino Rossini's music for the opera "Guillaume Tell" premiered on March 8th, 1829 at the Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique in Paris (I know what you're thinking and no I wasn't there).

Henrik Ibsen wrote "Peer Gynt" in 1867.
