As in learn to perform?
Could be. But I meant when they/you listen to the work too. So when you have a first listen and a second and a third, etc. Do you pay attention ot the key of the work (so that you remember it or it at least makes an impression).
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

I do, and it does. Sometimes while listening for the first time, I even identify the key based on another work (in the same key) with which I'm familiar (and usually feel excited if it's one of the favourites: c, c#, d, e, f, f#. ;D). There was a time when I went behind all the D minor works I could get hold of. My first source of western classical music was an all-request radio station (broadcast and streaming) based in Connecticut. Every evening here, and when the day would start there, I would scour Wikipedia trying to find another new piece in D minor to send as a request. :)

Just curious - do people here remember the key when they learn the work? Or did you have to look it up?

Whether I play a piece of music myself or just listen to others performance I always study the score thoroughly whenever available.
Consequently I tend to see the score in my mind, when I think of the music.

D Minor?
Beethoven No.9 comes immediately into my mind! :D Also Mahler No.3 and Liszt Hungarian Rhapsdy No.17!

Beethoven's Piano Sonata No.17 "The Tempest" and Bach's Toccata and Fugue BWV 565 too.
