Is the piece composed for more than one instrument?

If not, is the single instrument a keyboard instrument?



Does the work include, or consist solely of, vocals?

There were more than 1 Russo-Turkish war. If you were referring to the one between 1806-1812, then no, the composer was not born before the beginning of this war.

Okay, here's a new one...

When you enter only the composer's last name in Google Images search box, does the first picture show him sporting a moustache and/or a beard?

(I'm assuming that there weren't any female composers with either of those)

Quite a unique question, Nav!

But, the answer to your question, n#12 is No.

Piano trio? 13. Yes, does include a piano. Not necessarily titled as such though.

Female composer?

Did the composer live to see the second half of the 19th century?

If no to both: Felix Mendelssohn?



Edit: I keep asking stupid questions today.
