For the love of pianos and keys can someone help me with what the first song that plays of 50 demos that are programmed into the piano? I have shazammed it, even youtube'd every single song title that was provided with the "50 greats of the Piano" and can't seem to find a version similar to the one that the piano plays... It's the very first song if you listen to the demo songs, please help me I am literally going crazy here!

The voice demos are credited on page 13 of the owner's manual. According to the PDF version of the manual, the first demo is a re-arranged excerpt from Salut d'amour, op. 12 by Edward Elgar.

Hi Jonah,

Think I may give the piece a go myself, very nice.

There is a transposition into Bflat that is simpler there if you need it.
