Recap,

Orchestral Work with vocals composed by Gustav Mahler. Written in the 20th century, before 1928. Not Symphony #8.

Took a long time before Mahler got into the 30Q lineup!

Mahler is considered Austrian, I think that's why it took so long to figure out that he was born in the Czechoslovakian area.

That is why I had to answer the "Western European" question with a 'no' and 'yes'. Bohemia (Czechoslavakia) is not a part of Western Europe, but Austria is. The question did not specify 'born in Western Europe", so I was left with the answer. He wan't born there, but he lived, composed, and decomposed there. :D

Yes, we needed to be more specific with the question of birth or nationality. It would have helped tremendously in this case!

Live and learn :confuscious:

Major Scale?

I don't know the answer to that, so I'll not count this question.

Is it a Lieder (tr: a collection of songs?)?

EDIT: Obviously, not, since you wouldn't have chosen more than one piece.

Okay, here's a slightly modified question: Is it a Lied?

27. Is it a Lieder?

Yes.

(Who says I wouldn't pick a collection of songs? Mahler combined songs into a single work in most of his major pieces.) :)

[i]Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children)[i/]? No.

Oh, Okay. That's why I see both the song collection and the individual songs listed in his list of vocal works.

So is it the Ruckert Lieder?

That's somewhat true, but from what I saw, only the two lieders (the guesses) were listed. It could also be that the word Lieder wasn't explicitly mentioned in the name of the work. Oh well...
