    Can anyone tell me the name of the classical music playing in a current Prego spaghetti sauce spot? :huh: The commercial airs in Michigan and is a string orchestral piece. We have been stumped for music for our wedding and really love this particular music, but it's completely unfamiliar to us. If you could tell me the name of the music or a way to find it, I'd really appreciate the help.
    Thanks!

    The new commecials for Prego tomato sauce, featuring nostalgic images of Italian-American life, has a beautiful piece of music being played during it. It has a classical feel, with a prominent violin, making me think it may be a violin concerto. There is a touch of a more modern edge to it as well, which makes it sound like it could be something from 1900 to now. Any help would be appreciated!

    Found it on another message board!!

    It's "Illumination" by the new age group Secret Garden, from their 1997 album White Stones.

    "Illumination" by the new age group Secret Garden

    Sorry guys I don't want to pee on your bonfire but I'm afraid I have to. I watched the advert (There are in fact two different ones) and listened to the music mentioned above....and although its very close to one of them.....its not the tune. I emailed Prego as a result and here is their reply!

    I received your inquiry regarding the music that is used in the Prego
    commercials that are now on air. This music was composed especially for the
    spot. According to the account director and creative director at Y&R (our
    Prego advertising agency), only 30 seconds of music was composed. We have
    received numerous requests from consumers who would like to get a
    full-length version of this music. In fact, one consumer wanted to use it
    for her wedding. No artist information is available at this time.
    All I can say is if you want to get married to this tune :huh: unless you plan on a 30 second shotgun wedding, your best bet is to use the tune mentioned above.

    Damn I'm pedantic....sorry

    Hope this helps

    Rob

    Have you ever seen that really cheesy prego commercial where it shows tomatoes and herbs being diced and made into Prego Speghetti Sauce, while a slow violin solo plays and text cards come up saying that you should "Bring something nice to the table....Your family."

    The violin solo is very catchy, and I'd be interested in finding sheet music or the name of that song, but instrumental songs are extremely hard to find. If anyone else knows the name, I'd be much appreciative if you'd tell it to me.

    Yeahhhhh, I like that one too. Unfortunately it was made just for the ad.

    From Campbells Site:
    About the Music
    Like our captivating soundtrack? You're not alone! This original music was composed for Prego® by David Horowitz. Regis Iandiorio performs the beautiful violin solo.

    As I lay there gazing up at the billions of stars above my head in complete awe of creations beauty and vastness the most pressing question on my mind about the meaning of it all was, "Where in the hell is my roof?"
