Dag Wiren’s Serenade in Strings (here, specifically the fourth movement, start listening at 10:33 if you’re interested) or something very much like it (and I mean plagiaristically like it) I’m sure was used in some movie from the 40s or 50s, and I’d like to find out what movie it was. My mind is associating it with a British mystery or detective story, for what that’s worth.
I’ve checked IMDB but it doesn’t seem possible to search by music there.
Any other options? Or, miraculously, does anyone recognize the music and know the movie? By the way, programnotes.wikia.com says that it was used as the theme music for a British radio program called Monitor, but I’m sure I’ve never heard that show (or heard of it either) so that’s not the memory that’s being triggered.
OK, SDMB, wow me with your knowledge and expertise.
