    There are a couple of music pieces that play on the show that I really want to know the names of. Any help would be appreciated!

    "In Love And War" (Season Six)

    In the episode, Kyong Soon plays a record of violin music during her date with Hawkeye and they played the song again at the end of the episode as they say their goodbyes and she walks away from him.

    All I know is that it's a piece by Beethoven and that it's likely a violin duet. It sounded so beautiful and I really want to know what it is. As far as sad pieces go, I rank it up with Frederic Chopin - Nocturne No. 20 C#m.

    "The Birthday Girls" (Season Ten)

    When Major Houlihan confronts Major Winchester to ask if he could cover her lecture, so she can be in Tokyo for her birthday, she interrupted him while he was listening to a piece by Mussorgsky. I'd love to know the name of it. It was such a jaunty tune!

    Thanks for your help!

    I wish my father were still alive. He was a fan of both M*A*S*H and classical music and could have helped you.

    Not sure about the Beethoven, but the Mussorsgy is one of the selections from "Pictures at an Exhibition".

    Any luck on that? Any information would be helpful.

    @mulefritters: Thank you! Now, I'll know where to look!

    Old thread is old, I know. I just wanted to let you all know that I finally figured out the Beethoven piece last week-- and by a complete accident to boot!

    I think it was Beethoven's String Quartet no. 14 in C-sharp minor, op. 131



    Although, I would appreciate a second opinion on it, though. Here's the link to a YouTube video of it.



    If not, then at least listen to it-- it's beautiful!

    My father was a huge Beethoven and Mozart fan.
