Classical song

The first is from "Peter and the Wolf" by Sergei Prokofiev. And I'll be damned if that second one isn't from the thread entitled "FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE PLEASE." No one knows but this may be a lead.

EDIT- Ehhhhh maybe not on the second one. It sure sounds like something familiar but I can't place it.
sounds similar to that zena or hercules theme
Hey! My first post!

The music in the second part of the clip is from The Firebird Suite, by Igor Stravinsky. The musical excert begins almost exactly halfway through the piece.

Best regards to all.
Damn it. I knew that I knew it. :p Nice call neuropod. ;)

Specifically it's the very beginning of the fifth movement called "King Kachei's Infernal Dance."
