So now begins number seventy-three.
Could this work orchestral be?
Can the listener detect a hint
of a solo instrument?

When the White Star Line did begin
had this work yet been set to the pen?
Did the composer from this life depart,
'ere the twentieth century did start?

Tell me please, and honestly,
could it be a symphony?
Was it penned by the authors hand,
'ere the Great War ravaged the land?


Was the composer born, whether to woe or mirth,
'ere the year of Aaron Copland's birth?
Along or through the composers homeland
doth the flow the Rhine, that river grand?

Thanks, I enjoy it. I was worried that it was getting a bit redundant.

Symphony it is not,
it appeared after the Great War was fought /*be it June 1918 or Nov 1919*/
The man was to Copland certainly elder /*if that makes any sense :roll: */
In the homeland of the composer's birth the Rhine does meander.

(Shap, you're an inspiration! :D )

The composer's not German, so I'll take a chance.
And guess that perhaps he was born in France?
Composed after the Great War, that much is known,
but was it afore the Bismark to pieces was blown?

Dancers in costume dancing away,
could the composition be a ballet?
Whether it is or it isn't, could the piece
be composed by some by the name of Maurice?

Oh, No! Oh, No! Tell me it isn't so!
Surely the work isn't Ravel's Bolero!
Despised on this board! By so many hated!
Most annoying piece by Barfle so rated!

I guess that now I'm caught
With the next one I am wrought,
I thought, as a gimmick,
I'd do it as a lim'rick,
but decided, I'd better not.

In any case, 30Q number 74
will have to wait a little more.
Early today I'll leave,
with my riddles I'll not peave,
I'm heading for the door.

Tonight I'll try to rack
my brain for a musical track
to keep you people guessin,
for tomorrow's session,
'cause like Arnold, I'll be back!

T'was not I who so defined
The opus of the worst kind.
OT, however
to sink forever
Ravel's endeavor
did speak his mind.

Were I to choose
the work I prefer to lose
that makes me unhinge
'tis the aria of revenge.

I guess I'll keep my day job.

My apologies most humble,
I guess that was a fumble.
How'ere, You're name was a better fit
than OT's into the rhyming bit! :D
