Hey! I'm not sure if it's new or if it's me who just discovered it. As you probably know, you can do math in Google. You can translate words (which sometimes goes wrong). But it seems you can also ask it for a key of a music piece.

Asked about the Haendel's Sarabande and Paganini's Carnival of Venice. About Haendel it's no doubt right but I don't think the Carnival is in F Major, while it starts with E, into F#. It sounds too cheerful to be in F# Minor, so unless it's a mode or an exotic scale, the only other option is A Major. I mean the carnival is supposed to be happy, not sad. I'm still learning but I checked the notes of the main theme and 1st variation by ear and the notes fit. I can't figure out the chords in the background, so I can't use a chord progression to identify the key either.

Someday I'll have the ears to tell it right away but for now it's nice to know that Google works hard to aid musicians as well! smile.gif

PS. This database seems to be super small but let's hope it will grow over time.

Thank you! It's a great help to me for learning this piece by ear and trying to analyze its construction smile.gif
