Hi! I am looking for a name of a classical music that can be often heard when something is in fast motion. It's very popular, I don't know how else to describe it. Thanks for the answer.

Our best guess is Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance."

No, it's not that. It is sometimes used in Spanish bull fightings.

Maybe Bizet's "Toreador Song." (A toreador is a bullfighter).

Or the first few seconds of España Cañí:

España Cañí (meaning "Gipsy Spain" in Spanish language) is a famous instrumental Spanish piece of pasodoble music by Pascual Marquina Narro (1873-1948). The song was written around 1925. It is also known as the Spanish Gypsy Dance.

It's kinda simmilar to the first one but its not the right one. You have to hear that for many times. I remember hearing it on my Gameboy (the old ones that had simmilar games as tetris and such).

Wel its again kinda simillar to this one. First few seconds are almost the same. Cmon you must have heard it a billion times. Maybe it's not classical but productional but again it's very popular.

I don't know if you are old enough to remember the Ed Sullivan show.I recall when they had the guy balancing spinning plates on sticks they used Khachaturian's sabre dance.In case that helps

As we were putting together our brand new Famous Themes page, it occurred to us your song might be "Yakety Sax" by Boots Randolph.

Not classical, but really famous for playing during sped up or fast motion sequences.

Hope it helps!

yeah, really tough to explain this...looking for something in a woody woodpecker cartoon where he was banging on a piano while on a train (?).

dun dun dun dun DUN DUN DUN DUN
DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN
DUN dun DUN dun DUN dun DUN dun
and at the end of the show, the piano was destroyed and he played the last few notes:
dun DUN dun

yeah, I'm weird.
