Help?

in Piano

I'm trying to play Rondo Alla Turca by Mozart, and, as I am a mostly self taught pianist (I had a piano teacher two years ago, but then i went to a new school and learned clarinet because i wanted to be in band), I am having trouble with a few things that I am hoping someone can offer me guidance on
1- The left hand grace notes in arpeggios, can someone please tell me, how do i play those at that speed and correctly?
2- The right hand octaves. I am having a lot of difficulty with this, I try to play it and it makes my arm hurt while doing it, so i tried to relax a little and ended up completely missing the notes
Please help?

Anyone know this song?

in Piano

Hi folks. I'm a 70 year old who foolishly never bothered to learn keyboard from my Juilliard Candidate concert pianist/french hornist dad and am now trying to learn from scratch on my own. 
So I wonder if someone here might be familiar with a song I heard, which I would love to find sheet music for. I heard it once and tapped out as much of the melody as I could remember.

Thank you deeply to anyone who might know this piece. It's probably pretty old, because, you know, I'm pretty old ;-)
