My wife sent me a clip of a song she heard somewhere and wants me to learn it. Do you recognize it?

Isn't that Tchaikovsky? Something from Swan Lake.

It's not originally for piano, though, so you'd have to find an arrangement.

It made me think of Tchaikovsky or Schubert, but I figured that was just my ignorant lack of exposure to more classical music.

Definitely Tchaikovsky, possibly The Sleeping Beauty.

...which it was, but I meant and also incorrect wink

You're right, it's from the very beginning of Swan Lake, Act 1, No 2. Thanks!

Can't hear it...but my best guess is the first act what they call the Goblet Waltz from Swam Lake. Everybody is whooping it up at the Prince's burpday party. It's a rondo, you play it through to the middle and play it all back out again. Slam bang coda...
