Help identifying Beethoven arrangements

Postby mspmatt » Thu Feb 08, 2007 1:12 pm

Hello. I have list of 12 Beethoven .mp3's (each one is only 10 seconds or so long). I am trying to identify which arrangement they are from. Specifically, I am just try to identify the "number" associated with each arrangement. For example, Beethoven's 5th symphony, etc...

Anyone up for the challenge? http://www.visi.com/~karisalc/gc/

I need to identify the 6 that begin with north* and west*

Thank you in advance. Matt

Hello, Matt,

Welcome to the B.com BB!

I may try the challenge shortly, but I only have a few minutes to post right now.

Hi, Matt.

Well, here's my attempt...

northb is the 4th
c 5th
d 5th
f 9th

west e is Beethoven from the 70's :rofl:

The rest sound very familiar, but I'm not sure about their number.

Sorry, Matt. I meant to give this a try, and forgot to do so. I'll listen to them tonight, time permitting, and see if I can help.

Anyone else? Where is Bones when you need him.

I'll admit some of these are driving me crazy because I know the answer, I just can't remember it... tip of my tongue syndrome. :P

Anyway, here are the ones I do know for sure:

lvb_3_2.mp3 = Symphony No. 3 "Eroica" 2nd movement (a gimme).
north_b.mp3 = Symphony No. 4, 1st movement
north_c.mp3 = Symphony No. 5, 1st movement
north_d.mp3 = Symphoy No. 5, 2nd movement
north_e.mp3 = On the tip of my tongue.... my gut tells me 6th symphony, but still working on that one.
north_f.mp3 = stumped...still working on that one
north_g.mp3 = Symphony No. 9 "Choral" 4th movement
west_b.mp3 = Symphony No. 3 "Eroica" 1st movement
west_c.mp3 = stumped...still working on that one
west_d.mp3 = stumped...still working on that one
west_e.mp3 = some bluesy/funky guitar riff, I detect no Beethoven. :P
west_f.mp3 = stumped...still working on that one
west_g.mp3 = Egmont Overture

Will update as a progress. This is fun! :D

north e is Mozart - A Little Night Music

I don't recognize north f

west c, I think, is also Mozart, but I'm not sure of the piece.

west d sounds more like Henry Mancini than Beethoven

I think Hal's right about west e.

west f has me stumped

west_b.mp3 = Symphony No. 3 "Eroica" 1st movement
west_c.mp3 = TOTALLY STUMPED. This sounds like a popular British national theme, which makes me think Wellington's Victory, however this theme does not appear in that composition. I have no clue on this one.
west_d.mp3 = Symphony No. 3 "Eroica", 2nd movement (if you download lvb_3_2.mp3, it loads as west_d.mp3 :wink: )
west_e.mp3 = some bluesy/funky guitar riff, I detect no Beethoven.
west_f.mp3 = Symphony No. 2, 1st movement
west_g.mp3 = Symphony No. 8, 1st movement (I was wrong with Egmont Overture :dunce: )

Sorry, can't help ya with west_c or west_e, but everything else is right.

Thank you!

Hal 9000, Shapley and bignaf - THANK YOU.

The information you provided has been most helpful. Once I determine the correct solution, I will post. I'm getting very close now.

For those who might be wondering why I'm trying to identify these, it's to help determine the coordinates for a geocache location. Geocaching is a sport where you use a GPS receiver to locate caches throughout the world. This particular cache is called a "Puzzle Cache", where you need to solve a puzzle to determine the coordinates for the location of the cache. This particular cache is located near Minneapolis, MN.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=43408514-71d1-477c-a758-94d2b430b0b4 for those are interested in reading more.

Thank you again.

Everyone, I found the correct solution. Hal 9000, you were correct with nearly everything.

The correct answer for west_d.mp3 is the number "4". However, I don't know why it's a "4".

Hal 9000, you had indicated that west d was the following:

west_d.mp3 = Symphony No. 3 "Eroica", 2nd movement

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for all your time.

Sincerely,

Matt

No big surprise on west_d.mp3 not being Symphony No. 3, 2nd mvt. That was the one clip that I could not recognize (if I remember correctly, it was a ascending/descending flute line?). I made an educated guess based on the fact that the lvb_3_2.mp3 (which was Symphony No. 3, 2nd mvt.) loaded into my MP3 player as west_d.mp3. The educated guess: lvb_3_2.mp3 was the original clip for west_d.mp3, but the author changed their mind and used a different and more difficult clip from the same section. It was a guess.
