does anyone know what this is?

This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed.

This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed. However, we can say in our posts "you can hear a model interpretation by such and such a guitarist on such and such a site".

This forum serves as a place of mutual help if we are stuck on a technical or musical difficulty, whether the problem stems from the notes, the rhythm, the dynamics, or the fingering. We can post several successive versions of the extract, as our work on it progresses. This will serve to help not only the member who is presenting his work, but also indirectly the dozens of other members who are having the same issues with the same passage, but who don't have the equipment or the technical knowledge to post a recording.

As a rule there should be just one topic per work. If several discussions arise on the same work, the moderators will merge the threads together.

Seeing as this forum has so many knowledgable members I thought this would be the best place to ask. I have this mystery recording on my hard drive and I absolutely love the music. But I have no idea which piece it is or the composer's name. Anyone know?
Thanks:-)

The app Shazam might help. I'll try it this evening if nobody beats me to it.

Shazam on my phone couldn't figure it out I'm afraid.

I agree. I'm not sure how it got onto my hard drive, but yes, it does sound like Shostakovich. I'll listen to the symphonies on Spotify.

I'll ask some of the conservatoire's professors, some of them are composition majors and might recognize it.

Put it on youtube and wait for the song-matching algorithm to send you a take-down notice - the notice will tell you what the music is :D

Asked one of the composition professors, he could not recognize it :?
He just noticed it resembles Bartók composition style.

Dang it; I am obsessed with this now. It is such a great opening theme. Can you point to the whole piece or do you have just this little section? Any other information?

It seems to have irregular rhythm. Like: 3/4, 3/4, 3/4, 2/4, then 3/4, 3/4, 3/4, 3/4, 5/8; then a repeat of the whole thing but on the "up-beat" because of the missing 1/8.. until by repeating it it comes back on the down beat for the next section.. and cut.
