So, I was listening to an old cassette tape of radio music recorded by my brother years ago. The first song on the tape is classical violin at first, but gradually evolves into an upbeat, syncopated song with very fascinating percussion.

I am very curious who composed this and where I could hear more of it. I think it was played on WITF's classical music program years ago.

You can hear the show host begin to say the name of the composer, I believe, right at the end, but it gets cut off. It sounds kind of like Haciendo and maybe Wallace?

Can anyone identify this?

  • Hi @Tagger, can you explain what you refer to by "WITF", "Haciendo" and "Wallace"? I'm guessing the latter two are composers: adding some Wikipedia links (if they exist) would help. – Brahadeesh Apr 19 at 3:42

    Oh, I'm sorry! WITF is a radio station in Pennsylvania. This whole time I thught it was a national radio station, but it isn't. They had a classical music program which is now online: liveonlineradio.net/usa/witf-classical.htm – Tagger Apr 21 at 16:02

    I'm just trying to make sense of what the announcer says at the ends where it cuts off. Those are just two things it sounded like to me, but I don't think that's what he actually says. The announcer would usually say the name of the composition and the composer after the music ended. If you skip farther into the song you'll hear more of the percussion part. The beginning is mostly violin and piano. – Tagger Apr 21 at 16:04
  • Ah, I see, I understand now. I must say it's an interesting piece of music! I'm no help when it comes to identifying classical music, though. Hope someone else around here can help you :) – Brahadeesh Apr 21 at 16:25
  • The announcer is completely unclear to me too, sorry, I heard it on repeat several times now. – Brahadeesh Apr 21 at 16:31
