Default Help in identifying the name of a song

In the film, Rene Clair's - And Then There Were None (1945)

{Site will not allow me to include a link to the film on YouTube}

There is a piano solo played in the above named film.

Someone who knows, please tell me, what is the name of the music June Duprez is playing, starting at 39:23 ??

He says to the woman, "E-flat" so I looked through a bunch of E-flat piano sonatas but didn't find anything.

Sounds like Mozart, maybe. Sort-of like this:

It reminds me of Georg Philipp Telemann or Robert Shumann. Though I am not sure.

Default Thanks everyone

Thank you to everyone who considered my question.

The film was released through 20th Century Fox.

The credit for the film's music went to

Musical score: M. Castelnuovo-Tedesco

Musical director: Charles Previn

However since the film's release date was 73 years ago, and it was made in England, it is doubtful I would have any success in determining who they both were. I could try contacting the people at Fox Music but wonder why they would take any interest in such a request.

Whoever wrote that piece in question had some considerable talent in my estimation. I would enjoy hearing much more of his/her work.

Default Perhaps the answer at last

Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco was listed in the opening film credits for "Musical score: M. Castelnuovo-Tedesco"

With a little more research on the Wikipedia, apparently a number of films music have been credited to him.

My film of interest was specifically listed:

And Then There Were None (René Clair, 1945)

Further research pointed to a document: US Library of Congress, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco Papers, Guides to Special Collections in the Music Division of the Library of Congress

I downloaded the document, but the above mentioned film was not specifically listed. But there are 159 'boxes' of his information on file there. So, perhaps he was the composer of the piece I have been researching. He wrote many musical items during his tenure. But he also passed away in 1968.

I suppose now my task is to find someone who can reverse compose that piece. Personally I know almost nothing about the technicalities of music, but I truly enjoy the listening. If I had the written music then I could request someone to play and record a clean version without the movie dialogue in the film.
