dai ! It's 30Q, not 31Q ! :lol: However, since this piece is technically considered unsolved, and not alot of people have provided questions outside Serenity and Nav, I'll allow the question. I'd still like to see someone come up with the name of the work.

31. Yes, it is a work for violin.

Violin Concerto #1 in A major. He wrote 3 violin concertos and the first premiered in 1898 (just past your 1896 deadline). So this one is probably it.

Correct! :D

I just heard this work earlier this week, in the car listening to CBC Radio 2. Although I'm not a fan of the really fast (fiddling style) of the 1st movement, I did enjoy the Adagio 2nd movement.

This piece, according to my sources Serenity, came out in the year 1889.

Tag, you're it *ig!

I really didn't think it was going to be that tricky. Then again, I didn't realize there were that many Norwegian 19th Century composers. I thought this would be tough, but not as tough as it ended up being.

as I said: there were lots of questions here I wouldn't ask.

it is probably advisable, to look at all previous questions or latest recap, before asking a question. and it is probably best to narrow the filed before asking a question you hope will get lucky.

Yes, I was quite honestly surprised by alot of the questions.

There were alot of questions that did not do much in terms of narrowing down to size.

And yes, a few questions were asked after a clue had already been made known for which that question should have been avoided.

I think we should point out completely redundant questions. like "is the composer from Australia?" after we determined he is from Western Europe for example...
we supreme beings have to help out the lesser.... umm... what am I saying???? :P

I think a lot of the superfluous questions are merely post count boosters. seems to be a lot of that on the board these last few days.
