  • The iPlayer link is going to limit your audience to the UK only. Would be better if you can grab a sample of the relevant section & post to somewhere more readily accessible.

  • Sorry - I thought radio iPlayer worked outside the uk - certainly used to. Dec 6, 2017 at 13:52
  • I didn't think it did... but can't test as I'm in the UK ;-)

  • That's it! Thanks. I'm sure I've heard the pizzacato bit at the beginning of that movement sampled somewhere too, maybe on a 90s trance track? Dec 7, 2017 at 15:46
