Well, I'm striking out, but I'll take a shot in the dark.

I'm going to guess that it is the Concertino for Piano and Orchestra in G Opus 73, although I'm not sure that a 'concertino' is not, by definition, a 'concerto'.

Depending on the reply to Shap's guess,
Tell me whether the answer to the following query is a 'Yes'.

Is the piece a septet?

If it is indeed a septet, my guess: Septet for piano, flute, oboe, horn, viola, cello & double bass (or for piano quintet) in D minor, Op. 74

Well, I hope you two are right. I really didn't want to do another one so soon. I have to figure another way to keep it interesting....

True, we have to wait for Hex.

Because it is numbered between Opus 34 and 84, it would have to be composed between 1810 and 1820. I picked those numbers because they split the latest timetable of 1800-1820 neatly in two. I used this list to find works that fit the description. I neglected the septet, even though it is right next to the one I picked, because I didn't pick up on 'Pf' as apparently being 'pianoforte', since they spell out the word 'piano' in the other listings.

Wow, a lot happens in a few hours while I'm out.

It is indeed the excellent Piano Septet No. 1 in D minor Op. 74!

Good job.

I like your Lisztian slip there, Cat :mrgreen:

Nope, Nav! I'd like you to go ahead with numero 54. :) But thanks for the offer. :)

I figured it was either that or the C major one, way back when I ask the C major question. I'm so much smarter than everyone else! :D :crazy: :rofl:
