As the ole' man Shap said in a few posts back
You'll find that 'twas indeed, the composer Dvorak.


I read this post and thought "What the Heck?"
I merely confirmed that Dvorak was a Czech.

Now my attention I turn to the questions at hand:
Dai wants to know if a soloist tacks the stand.
Whether piano, violin, or the mellow cello,
the answer to questions is a simple No.

His second question was answered somewhat,
when I replied to Bignaf that twas duo, trio, or quartet not.
But as for the question of whether 'tis eight
I say No, the size of the ensemble is not that great.

Now, to Hal's question, is Dvorak the man?
To provide a Yes answer to this one I can.

Take no offence, to my calling you Ole Man Shap,
'twas in jest, we all now you are a young chap!

So now that we've begun page number two,
I'll try to provide a recap for you:
We know that the work in question was penned
'ere first day of the twentieth century beginned.
And to cut down the timeframe, it really is nifty
to know it was composed before 1876, after 1850.

The composer, a Slav, a Czech in fact
turns out to be none other than Dvorak!

The composition an orchestal work does not be,
nor is it written for instruments one, two, or three.
Not even for four! Though we are getting warmer,
For we know there is not an eighth performer!

No offense was taken, no reason I see.
Though I'm not so young as I once enjoyed being.
I still have hope that yet older I'll be
As there is so much in life I hope to be seeing!

Is it a quintet?, I ask
For me, poetry is a #$^%!@ tough task :x
Does someone play that instrument, you know,
the one they call a piano?

This composition is indeed a quintet,
but don't give up searching for the correct one yet,
for Trumpetmasters' guess, Opus 18, for piano, number 2
Is not the work I had chosen for you.
For had he been patient and for an answer waited
as to the question of whether a piano participated
He'd have found that the answer thereto is No
The hammerklavier does not participate in this show. :D

Navneeth weighs in with a composition guess,
hoping I'll provide him with an answer of yes,
unfortunately regarding opus 1, though
I have to tell him the answer is No.

I'll make a guess and hope you come clean:
Is it String Quintet No. 2 in G, Opus 18?

Indeed, if anyone had been paying attention
I shouldn't have even had to mention
that as often as not the opus of the piece I choose
will have the same number of as the 30 Q's.

So Trumpetmaster weighs in with a winning guess,
as to String Quintet number 2 in G, Opus 77, Yes!

And by the way, lest I miss the chance to say
congratulations will probably be needed today
as Trumpetmaster will likely, 'ere the day is done,
overtake OT as postwhore :#1:
