Diamond commercial????

Postby violinist4ever » Sun Jun 08, 2008 6:18 pm

Hello Everyone! does anyone know the name of the piece that is being played on the Diamond commercial? It's an older commercial where a young couple and an old couple are walking in the park.
The instrument is a cello. THANK YOU!!

That's Jenkins' Palladio.

Hello! Are you sure? I think there are two different commercials... What movement is it? do you know if the version on the commercial (with the cello) was done by someone else or is it just in the middle of the movement? thanks!!

I'm only familiar with one set of diamond commercials, and that is the deBeers commercials that figured veiled images of couples accompanied by Jenkins' Palladio. I believe it is the allegretto (first movement).

You can hear samples here: Diamond Music

thank you!! I listened to the clip... I that's the other commercial. Unless the part they used was later on in the movement. I'm going to have to try to hear the entire movement. I remember it being a waltz...or what sounded like a waltz to me. and it was slower and a solo cello. ?

I guess I'm not familiar with that one. Good luck! :)

Request it. I know they have it (because that's one of the CDs I donated to them).
