Squid Game burst onto our screen at the end of September 2021 in a blaze of gore, shock, and mystery. But what audiences probably weren’t expecting, was the appearance of some of classical music’s best known works.

Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto in E flat major – 00:00
Half an hour into the first episode, the players are woken up by the third and final movement of Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto in E flat major. This piece becomes a chilling theme throughout the rest of the series, garnering the contestants’ attention at critical points and bringing a sense of unease to both the players, and the audience. It’s possible Squid Game chose this piece due to the movement’s virtuosic fanfare-style playing.
With fanfares often used to announce important figures, opening ceremonies such as the Olympics, and to sound the start of a war, this work is a suitable choice for a show which combines all three themes.

Johann Strauss II’s An der schönen, baluen Donau – 4:15
Strauss had been commissioned to write the piece for the Vienna Men’s Choral Society in 1866 in order to lift the spirits of the people of Vienna, due to Prussia’s win in the Austrian-Prussian war, that same year.
Similarly to war, Squid Game has many fatalities, with almost half of all players killed in the first episode. The clever choice of The Blue Danube as an underscore then for events before and after games alludes to the idea that game makers are trying to lift the spirits of the players, who like the people of Vienna in 1866, have also witnessed tragic losses.

Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C major – 13:22
Tchaikovsky composed his Serenade for Strings in C major from his “inner conviction”. Squid Game uses the waltz, the second movement, to mark the end of the second game, and the deliberation involved in the forming of teams for the third.


  1. THANK YOU I’m gonna use this to study now 😌

  2. Making a series like Squid Game and not using Classical Music is a big no go

  3. I feel so bad for the stringed orchestra instruments that play in these songs


  5. Everyone saying: why this music in this series? It doesn’t make sense!

    Me: how is this so perfect

  6. Fun fact: The first "K-Pop" song was a classical song called Waltz of the Danube in the early 1920s…which the Dutch stole for their own Anniversary Song.
    Or so the story goes…

  7. i felt like it took me longer than it should to find this

  8. Did this video use the correct version of the Haydn Trumpet Concerto? Which one was it? Were the other pieces accurate, like the correct recording for Tchaikovsky's Serenade?


  10. I don't really know what squid game is
    But this are some really cool music for my suffering

  11. 13:16
    -Private function invitation only
    -Oh yeah? Well Mr Leone says otherwise

  12. Every body gangster till you pause the music and its still playing

  13. Whenever I hear On the Beautiful Blue Danube, I think of sailing on RMS Lusitania, sitting in the large dining room, the soft occasional clatter of a fork and knife clashing as we move onto our 3nd course of the meal. There's a soft yet present chatter around the room, it being drowned out by the guests at the table, speaking of what's gone on with them, how the Olympic class looks like a wonderful alternative to the Lusitania and Mauritania should they be unavailable, how their sons and daughters are doing. By the time we finish dinner, It's 12:00 and so we retire to our cabins. Ahhh what a great think to ponder sometimes.

  14. The Blue Danube was used in the Films 2001: A Space Odyssey and Hold That Ghost.

  15. The Second Movement of Tchaikovsky's Serenade For Strings is my Favorite.

  21. When people hear Blue Danube one person thinks of flying, other person thinks of space, the other one thinks about squid game, the other one thinks about Vienna and Strauss

  22. have you done the penthouse edition? if haven't, i suggest you to do one

  23. What’s the song they listened to on the way to the games?

  24. ¿Eso existe en una musica clásica de un compositor,es que no me lo se en mi infancia?/¿Does that exist in a classical music by a composer, is it that I did not know it in my childhood?
