The beginning of the melody reminds me of Verdi's overture to the La Forza del Destino, but I mention this just as a curiosity, as the rythm and tempo, as well the rest of the melody, seem to be quite different.

This is "La Cinquantaine" ("Golden Wedding Anniversary") by French romantic composer Jean Gabriel-Marie, typically performed on cello and piano.

I was able to locate it by reproducing your very accurate rendition with this service: http://www.musipedia.org/
