Very nice! You do know your stuff. I am very impressed. I do not think that I will be able to present a question to you that you cannot answer. I will have to do something to "spruce up" my riddles. In the mean time... <P>Who was the only composer to see their composition in the Disney Classic “Fantasia”? He wasn’t too pleased on how the ‘cartoon action’ went with his music.<P>Good luck!<BR>
Long live the mighty triangle!

So what's the answer?</B><P>Quite frankly, I had a time finding much information on <B>Joseph Joachim</B> myself, and Drat!, I still can't find the full text of this quote. Don't you have any biographies on him at home or anything? Every Encyclopedia I try just puts in a short entry on him. You'd think there would be more detail somewhere on the vast wasteland of the Internet. . . Oh, and in case I haven't made it clear. . . . . . the four composers are Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Brahms, and Bruch. I really think Bruch is a close runner-up to Mendelssohn in the violin concerto department, and I think the quote conveyed that, however I think Joachim is still right about the E-minor being greatest. <P><B>Do I still get a prize?</B><BR>Maybe a porcupine; we shall see. I have to find the picture. Now, if you could find me the full text of the quote, it would be a different story. If it helps, I heard it somewhere between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM on NPR's "Performance Today" a week or two ago. <P>One othere thing, Nicole, there just isn't enough of your show. Is it so short because of school constraints, or what?<P><BR>Your #1 Fan,<P> -- Ethan Adams<P>

This is a very challenging and enjoyable column. <P>Joachim had good taste. I agree 100% with his 4. I suspect baroque concertos would not qualify for him. Bach had only recently been rediscovered and not yet explored when Joachim began his career. <P>The communist national anthem was written in 1944 after a competition. It was soon incorporated into the 1812 for local consumption, replacing the czarist God Preserve thy People. Those buggers REALLY DID rewrite history. I recall an early MGM Lion LP with the 1812 and Marche Slave on one side. The reviewer of it talked of how aghast he was to hear it in the recording. The jacket notes were standard stuff, unaware of the change. Before he got over the shock, the same anthem appeared in Marche Slave excising the same czarist hymn. Later, in stereo days I got a Russian made record that included Marche Slave. Sure enough, it happened there, too. Somebody with great curiosity, patience, and bucks to burn might look for older soviet discs with the dynamic duo of Tchaikovsky. I bet you, too, can listen in complete disbelief to the adaptations.<P>The Fantasia question has already been answered in a Musical Notes column under an appropriate heading.<BR>Shos
