I heard this piece on public radio a few years ago and I haven't been able to track it down. It sounds a bit like Elgar, but I haven't found any pieces that match it.

  • Do you have an alternative method of sharing the piece of music besides the link you provided?

  • I guess, you are right with the period. My best guess is a dance suite for string orchestra, but neither Holst St. Paul Suite nor Janacek, Danses Lachiennes or Idylle matched.

  • Lately I've been wondering if it's Walton, since occasionally his work can sound like Elgar, but I still haven't been able to track it down.

This is the fourth movement (Molto vivace) of the Serenade for strings in F major (Opus 6) by Felix Weingartner.

The extract corresponding to your audio file can be heard here.

The names of the other movements can be found here.

    Wow, thank you so much! I've been looking for this for about 7 years now, and I'd all but given up. Did you just happen to know the piece, or did you use an app of some kind?
