    My daughter has recently taken a very strong liking to "Tom and Jerry" (thankfully), and of course two of the classics are Academy Award-winning "The Cat Concerto" and "A Mouse in Manhattan."

    Does any one know which musical pieces were performed in those cartoons?

    Cat Concerto features Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.
    According to this link the main them of Mouse in Manhattan is a song called "Manhattan Serenade" by Louis Alter. Click Here
    Edit: And also here is a link to the Cartoon Database where it says that the song "Broadway Rhythm" by Nacio Herb Brown is also featured. "Broadway Rhythm" is also featured in the Broadway Melody ballet at the end of Singin' in the Rain.

    Cool! I'm going to have to see if eMusic has any of these.

    Thanks!

    Well, eMusic has both "Hungarian Rhapsody" and "Broadway Rhythm". "Broadway Rhythm" is most definitely used in "Mouse In Manhattan" and I recognize segments that were used in other T&J cartoons.

    Looks like "Manhattan Serenade" will have to be tracked down, though.
