Melody/ochestration The Show Must Go On (live)

 
 
Reply Fri 1 Mar, 2019 09:05 am
What is the back tracking instrumental music that the orchestra is playing behind Céline Dion The Show Must Go On (2016 Billboard Music Awards)? I've heard it before, must be a classical piece but it surely isn't a part of Queen's original song. So does anybody know what melody the violins are playing? Thanks!

@anaapearl,
I hear a bit of Behthoven's 5th in there I believe (at the beginning), and maybe a bit of Figaro (Opera) in the middle. I'm not entirely sure, but those are what come to the back of my mind.

@laughoutlood,
Actually, his 9th is my favorite.

@rosborne979,
Thanks a lot! I have quite some trouble identifying the rhythm but I see the similarities with the chord progression.

@rosborne979,
I do hear it quite more with Figaro bizarrely enough!

@rosborne979,
Apparently, "It’s the Allegro vivo section from Rossini’s overture to The Barber of Seville." as someone replied, now we know! Smile
