This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Basic analysis questions, such as "What key is this song in?", are off-topic. Questions should be substantial and refer to a well-defined work or subsection, including a concrete reference (sheet music, etc.)." – guidot, Todd Wilcox, Carl Witthoft, Tetsujin, Richard

  • Perhaps you're not aware, but there are dozens of software "tuner" apps that you could feed a sound clip from said piece into and find the pitch for yourself -- assuming you can't read the score. – Carl Witthoft Jul 23 '18 at 13:37

    This question is actually off-topic here, as it's essentially a trivia question. – Todd Wilcox Jul 23 '18 at 16:12
  • Ok, I now see that the question is off topic as "transcription of specific works, including identifying notes/chords/meters/other elements in song". – Steve Bennett Jul 23 '18 at 23:32

E. The score is here at IMSLP.

  • In which octave? – Steve Bennett Jul 23 '18 at 12:16
  • @SteveBennett If you don't know how to read a score, then I strongly suggest you take the time to learn before worrying about what a particular note is in a particular piece. – Carl Witthoft Jul 23 '18 at 13:36
  • Thank you for the snarky advice. Actually it's somewhat time consuming to access the correct PDF at IMSLP, wait for the download, navigate to the correct bar - and the answerer apparently had the information available already. – Steve Bennett Jul 23 '18 at 23:31
