30Q #45 Hexameron

Postby Hexameron » Sun Oct 08, 2006 1:14 pm

My first 30Q! "Ask me the questions bridge-keeper[s]. I'm not afraid" Just don't ask about the composer's favorite color.

Post-1850?

Western European composer? (Btw, trying to list countries which are strictly western european can be a tricky issue, so we just use Wikipedia as rough guide)

Did the composer belong to either Germany, Austria, Italy, or France?

And with that, I'll shut up, and let others ask some questions. :D

One of Schubert's last works?

Whoever asks about 1827 should probably use 1829 or 1830, lumping Schubert and Beethoven as in or out.

Just a suggestion for the future.

Is there a chorus involved?

If so, is it a Men's chorus?

Is it vocal?

Is it for an instrumental soloist?

Is it for a chamber group?

funny you should consider Schubert a major composer. :D
I invented the 1827 question, mostly because I would have Schubert in mind when thinking of romantic music, not so with Beethoven. but I guess 1829 would be better, just two years and you eliminate another so-called major composer.
and, BTW, if you were going to ask such a small elimination question (Schubert late works), :rolleyes: you should at least ask 1829 to eliminate a fe w more pieces. :evil:

Recapping:

    - Non-String Quartet Chamber work, without vocals/chorus and with more than two performers
    - Written between 1827-1850
    - Composed by either a German, Austrian, Italian or French composer.
