Questioned heaped into mighty pyres!
So many answers to digest. Perchance,
Is the composition some type of dance?



Hope you had a nice lunch!

Not a symphony, nor a dance,
I threw the die and took a chance,
Now it looks as though, to me,
A syphonic poem it can only be.

Which poem, now is the question I ask,
to solve the riddle, that is the task.
Which work, indeed, could it be?
Did it open the movie Space Oddessy?
Quod scripsi, scripsi.

Question 15

A Symphonic Poem you might say....
You are right on the money....

Question 16
But alas with you're modesty
you are off with the Oddessy....

I do not mean to quibble and quiver,
but question 15, the one about a river,
you did not happen to notice, I guess,
should only be answered if 14 was Yes.

Was it composed 'ere the Spanish-American War?

It is here we learn History
You are about to see.........

This Tone poem Strauss once conducted
was scored before the war.....

The Spanish-American War was a conflict between the Kingdom of Spain and the United States of America that took place from April to August 1898.

Shakespeare, the bard, whose wit and fame,
put my humble poetry entirely to shame,
Wrote many great works, are the name
of one of his works and this one the same?

Nikolaus Lenau a poem once penned,
Of which Richard Strauss was impressed beyond end,
and inspired a work, which is very well known,
Could this work possibly be the same juan?

Methinks I am cornered....
For as you can see..........

A Bullseye you;ve hit
from the place where you sit......

With great gladness I give you
without further delay....

It is Don Juan
by Richard Strauss for the answer today!!!

Nice Job Shapley!!!!

I don't expect to have time for much fun, it's a business trip. I arrive in Dallas Thursday afternoon and leave Friday Afternoon. I'm here all day today, but there's no guarantee a new 30Q would get done before I leave, then it'd just be hanging for a couple days.

I'll PM Haggis and see if I can get him to buy me beer Thursday evening, though. :D
