13. Is the composer French, Spanish, Portugese, or Italian?

Yes, and I think it's time for a roll-over and a recap.

  • 20th century piece composed before 1945
  • Orchestral, does not feature any highlighted instruments
  • Not a symphony, overture to an opera or stage play, but (I think) it has been used in ballets (if that means anything!).
  • Composer is either French, Spanish, Portugese, or Italian

I'll also limit myself to one question per post - I've been getting over-zealous lately.

:oops:

I think it's because you want to reach the epic 5K mark by the weekend. :P

Also, if you are going to ask 3 questions, you should do it in 3 separate posts. You're slowing chipping away at OT's lead, and if you keep up your 'zealousnes' over the next 2 years, if OT keeps his low posting habits of the last 2 or 3 months, you'll catch up to him. :wink:

Yes, but OT has a new iMac he'll be wanting to put to the test, so I expect his post count to go back up.

Unless, of course, Bush, Cheney, and Rove resign, oil prices drop to pre-2000 levels, the War in Iraq ends, and the Democrats win the House and Senate in November, in which case he'll have nothing to complain about...

Anyhow, back on track - Was the composer born prior to 1875?

I'm gonna gun it with two questions:

Is it a symphonic poem?

Is it the Three Botticelli Pictures?

18. Is it a symphonic poem?
I'm leaning towards 'No'. There's nothing I can find in the web that suggests that it is one.

Is it the Three Botticelli Pictures?

That would be a guess. It is not the Three Botticelli Pictures.

Is it considered a "suite" ? Like suite for orchestra or suite from a ballet?

Ok, let me rattle off a few... I have some Respighi suites so lets see...

Is it the Ancient Airs and Dances suite?

Is it the Suite in E major?

Is it the Belkis Queen of Sheba suite?

Or is it The Birds suite?

Hope I didn't waste 4 questions there :oops:

Since Hex already asked about Ancient Airs and Dances, this is not a question. I'm betting it's one of the suites or all 3. That would make the confusion about ballet reasonable.

Shos, I don't understand. How can Hex asking about Ancient Airs exclude Pines of Rome as a question? Why can't it be the Roman Trilogy?

Yes, it is. I should have asked if it was the Roman Trilogy (Pines of Rome, Fountains of Rome and Roman Festivals), since the three symphonic poems combined would make it a suite. Navneeth leaned toward NO when asked if it was a symphonic poem but wasn't 100% sure and you did not specifically have Roman Trilogy in your post, so I thought I'd ask.
