I'm looking for the score to a song that I thought was called "Cuckoo Clock," but that is called "The Swiss Cuckoo" in this video.

I don't know which name, if either, is correct. Does anyone know of a book or place I can purchase the score?

    Is the song in the video the right song or not? If not, remove it, it's confusing. If so, then what do you need us to answer? – Chris Sunami supports Monica Feb 24 '16 at 18:12
  • The tune is right, but I don't know if the name is correct. The guy who played the piano said cuckoo clock, but searches for "cuckoo clock" reveal a different tune. This video is the only one I found with the tune I'm looking for. – Dushara Feb 26 '16 at 8:06
  • OK, that makes more sense. I'll edit your question to clarify. – Chris Sunami supports Monica Feb 26 '16 at 13:58

Some research on the name Takács suggests that the composer is Jenö Takács. There is a website devoted to him and his life and music here : http://www.takacsjeno.com/

From there (english language version of website), searching for solo piano pieces shows a piece called "XIX. Die Kuckucksuhr [The Swiss Cuckoo Clock]" in a collection called "Für mich [For Me]. Little recital pieces, op. 76 (1963)"

I wasn't able to see a sample of the music, as none of the online music sellers I found seemed to have it, but second-hand copies were around. You may have better luck with this extra information.
