It's a Question of Music

If the night light from the heifer barn was music this is how it would sound

Country, pop, and rock, from the fifties to today, I have heard a lot and remember many.

Riding in the Camaro with the kid we sing along with the Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Manfred Mann, Hinder.....and many, many more..... Music has always been a real big thing and all.....

 (And on side note, ain't it cool that kids today still love the music we grew up with?)

However, although I like classical music and really love some of it, (Beethoven's 9th, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor) I know very little about it.

Thus for YEARS I have been trying to find out what the piece of music is that is played during the Quadrille part of the Lipizzaner show in Vienna. It sounds like maybe Strauss or something .....

If you watched the PBS show on the stallions last night you heard it. (And thanks Mom!!!! For calling me and telling me that it was on. I was getting ready for bed, but I was real happy to stay up for a while.)

So, if anyone can help me figure out what that piece is I would be most grateful. I know you are a real smart bunch of clever folks and all.....

Thanks in advance.

Dad and I enjoyed that show too. It was half way through before I thought to call you. They are certainly beautiful horses. They originally came from the Bedouins who took over Spain in early times.
The grounds of the school and the brood farm are just gorgeous. Loved the show. Mom

I'm sending you a list of the music used for the show, by private e-mail.

No we have not taken advantage of something almost in our back yard. Its like a lot of things, we plan to do that but never get around to it. Our church senior group have gone to see the horses a few times and we just never seemed to go for one reason or another. There is another troop traveling her right now called The Royal Horses, I have seen ads for them.

if you have a smartphone, there's an app called "shazam." i'm convinced that it is magic. open the app, let it listen to the music, and it will give you artist and title. it is amazing.
