I agree with James and Phil, the piano part of Clubbed to Death 1 (not Part 2) is a variation over Enigma Variations, Op. 36.

If someone is still interested in knowing the samples used for this song, you can look at this page:

The 4 samples listed there are:

- It's a New Day by Skull Snaps (1973)
- Enigma Variations, Op. 36 by Edward Elgar (1899)
- Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity by Gustav Holst (1918)
- Arrest the President by Intelligent Hoodlum (1990)

I can confirm these samples were indeed used in various parts of the song (strings, rythm, some sound effects).

A last one I could find is: "ESG: A South Bronx Story (ufo music)" which is used as a sound effect throughout the music (the background glass shaterring sound effect).

I also recreated a full score of the song as a midi file. I did my best to get the precise rythm and melodies, and also to recreate the background sound effects (even if it's impossible to get a perfect recreation since it's not possible to use samples in a midi file).

You can find it here:

And also on nonstop2k and The key is in A-sharp minor 11th.
