Funny, Donald, I would assign the source of that tune to the exquisite Adagio un poco mosso of Emperor Concerto: it comes up very early in the movement in the orchestra and then later for the piano. Might Strauss have been quoting Beethoven?

For those that don;t know it, summon up  on Youtube":
(Cliburn)Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 Mvt II 

( a 1962 performance under Kiril Kondrashin)

A nice, ethereal of music to mull for New Year's Eve.

Best- David

Bernstein was a heavy "borrower". Another big tune from
WSS is "There's A Place or Us" which is, note for note, a
melody created by Richard Strauss for his Burleske For Piano
and Orchestra.
