#109488 08/07/03 04:34 PM 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.
#109489 08/07/03 04:51 PM There, there, Faldage and WW. I appreciated your bald-faced repartee.

We'll climb that mountain when we come to it.
#109491 08/08/03 03:36 AM Niet, niet. I am Dmitri Shostakovich
#109492 08/08/03 06:31 AM 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."
#109493 08/08/03 07:23 AM Sorry, Bingley, it looks like Shostakoviches are a dmitri a dozen. Here's another one.

#109494 08/08/03 01:51 PM 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...
formerly known as etaoin...
#109495 08/08/03 02:01 PM 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
#109496 08/08/03 03:18 PM Polovetsian Dances !!!
#109497 08/08/03 05:18 PM 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.
