Sounds like Chopin to me. Maybe one of his nocturnes. ( I haven't looked at Fred's link yet.)

 

Ok, now I've checked out the link. I was right ! At least about its being Chopin - it's not one of the other pieces listed. But it's not one of his nocturnes. Apparently it's this:

 

* "Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23" \ (1835-36) (uncredited) \ Music by [Frédéric Chopin|http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0006004/]

Thanks ever so much, Fred and MissWonderly, for your search.

I enjoy this music, especially the beginning, which seems to be the

part played on 'Gaslight'.

 

 

And I've heard this piece played in other movies, as well. I can't

think offhand which movie, but my ears always 'perked' up whenever

I hear this tume.

 

 

Chopin's Ballad no. 1 in G minor, Op. 23 . . . got it !

 

 

Thanks again ! love.gif

Chopin wrote many very fine pieces, most of them for the piano. He was, I believe, considered a composer from the "Romantic" era. You've probably heard a lot of his music in movies and perhaps not even realized it.

Here's my very favourite piece by him, the exquisitely beautiful "Raindrop Prelude":

Chopin, my foot. All those pieces were written by Cornel Wilde.
