Maybe it's one of those pieces that if I heard it I'd say "Oh yes, that one!" but I can't hear it in my head by memory. My knowledge of "classical" music is pretty shallow.
There, there, Faldage and WW. I appreciated your bald-faced repartee.
We'll climb that mountain when we come to it.
Niet, niet. I am Dmitri Shostakovich
I am Aleksandr Borodin.
Son of a 19th Century Russian prince and a...non-royal...mother, you went to medical school and became a biochemist. Most people, however, (and probably your twenty cats as well) agree that they'd trade all of your scientific discoveries for another set of "Polovetsian Dances."
Sorry, Bingley, it looks like Shostakoviches are a dmitri a dozen. Here's another one.

You are Igor Stravinsky.
Known as a true son of the new 20th Century, your music started out melodic and folky but slowly got more dissonant and bizzare as you aged. You are a traveler and a neat freak, and very much hated those rotten eggs thrown at you after the premiere of "The Rite of Spring."
yeah, I don't quite fit the neat bit either...

OP it looks like Shostakoviches are a dmitri a dozen. Here's another one .
well, i am a rarer bird - Chajkovsky... although I don't like his music anymore, I hear it too often on Classic FM, his works are something like pop-classics
Polovetsian Dances !!!
Vika, I liked (and fully understood) the way you transliterated your composer. The common way in these parts is Tchaikovsky, though you see variations of that, too.
