Whose symphony is this?
on: May 16, 2004, 10:18:41 PM
I have a mysterious recording (actually, many) that I have deduced is a Liszt transcription of some composer's Symphony #6.  The theme is, with note values ~equalling spaces in between letters:
A A# D C A#AG C   -  begins in F maj.  Can you help me out guys?
A modern house without a flush toilet... uncanny.

Beethoven's, maybe? The pastoral symphony.  ;D

I guess Liszt didn't even transcribe symphonies by any other composer. :P

Definitely Beethoven's pastoral symphony. 1st movement.
