Lollta sent an e-mail about the trumpet player in Onett:

I’ve listening to old Japanese music name “Ieji” many time.

Yesterday I’ve just realized that it sound like the music that Onett trumpet player play especially on 0.20-0.27 of the above clip.

I don’t sure that other people will think the same thing or not.

Yep, it’s the same music! Both the Ieji song and the Onett trumpet song are from Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, Movement 2:

I seem to recall hearing this in another game a while back, but I can’t remember where. I guess it’s something that Japanese creators/artists/musicians in general like to reference from time to time!

Dvorak is so amazing! Glad to see him in this game. :)

It’d be funny if the trumpet player played Totaka’s Song. That is, if Kazumi Totaka had worked on EB.

There is a popular version of the melody titled “Goin’ Home” that I heard a bunch of times when I was in Scotland (often with bagpipes!).

I found a video of the approximate arrangement I’m familiar with, and linked in below.

References are cool, and always interesting! I always get a bit more excited when I find references in media I like. And this makes me happy. =w=
