hal, there appears to be two instances of Beethoven's 4th movt. from his 5th symphony in the main list. :)

I have only senn the title of the next topic(too eager to see these results :))... seems it may be as tough, if not tougher than this one. :?

Look at my list, your list, and TrumpetMaster's list to find the 3 instances of Beethoven's 5th symphony, 4th movement.
