30Q #50 Anniversary Edition

Postby Hexameron » Sat Oct 14, 2006 8:55 pm

This is the anniversary edition of 30Q, so that means... well nothing actually. But there is a little secret reason for my choice of composer/piece which I guess will only be understood once you figure it out.

Ok, with that said, I'm all set for questions. I have google up just in case Shapley asks if the composer was alive during the Treaty of Augsburg or the Great Chicago Fire :mrgreen:

That Shap! Making us do all that research and work! I had Wikipedia and Google running for his questions. :P

OK, here goes. Was the composition created prior to Shapley's home state being admitted into the Union? :P

Was it composed in the same year?

If No is the answer that to Q...was it composed after 1900?

Sorry. I should have been clearer. I meant the year in which Shos hit the half-a-century mark. :)

Is it orchestral?
Does it include human vocals?

I thought I found the 50th connection... if there is one...

Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga (1806–1826): Early 19th century Spanish composer, born on Mozart's 50th birthday. Wrote three brilliant quartets (ca.1824) before his abrupt death at age 19: No 1 in D minor; No 2 in A major; No 3 in E-flat major

It fit everything so far, but your composer isn't Spanish. Hmmm...

Nice try, but I guess I over-suggested some kind of "connection" with a 50th 30Q; the composer/piece doesn't have anything to do with the number 50, nor does the composer/piece relate to any of the 30Q in the past. I guess it will just make sense once you figure it out.
