  • $\begingroup$ The bottom notes of the beginning hint look like octaves of F-G-A. Which sounds like Frere Jacque. But I don't recognize anything else. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Feb 27 at 1:45
  • $\begingroup$ @Daniel: sorry, but nothing to do with Frere Jacque, The tempo for those octaves is "presto con fuoco" . $\endgroup$ – ThomasL Feb 27 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ Well I think there are four sharps (key of E), so the beginning looks like F# G# A G# A B, which sounds familiar but I can't ID it. In the top picture the right key just seems to be doing a scale. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Feb 27 at 23:27

    $\begingroup$ Is there more to this than just converting the synthesia notation into block notation? $\endgroup$ – justhalf Mar 1 at 7:09
  • $\begingroup$ It's not a piano piece (though I often play it on one) but it reminds me of Onpu'f Gbppngn (va q zvabe, gur bar jvgu gur shthr). $\endgroup$ – Glorfindel Mar 1 at 11:30

Through some internet research, I was able to determine that the piano piece is:

Chopin Scherzo No. 3

For example, if you look at the sheet music for it at this site and turn to page 3 of the sheet music, the part listed in Hint2 is located there.

  • $\begingroup$ Tricky. I was searching for D flat major instead of C sharp minor. $\endgroup$ – RobPratt Mar 3 at 22:56
  • $\begingroup$ @JS1, congrats, you solved it! It is op 39, finished in 1839, and Chopin was 39 years old when he passed away... $\endgroup$ – ThomasL Mar 4 at 19:38

This is not an answer, but I couldn't fit it into a comment.

I transcribed the sheet music in Hint2 into ABC notation. Copy the ABC notation below and paste it into to this ABC player/editor page, and then press the play button to hear the music. I didn't recognize it myself, but maybe someone will recognize it after hearing it.
