Congrats on 5,000 Shap, as I reached 1,500 at almost the exact same moment!

Well, Hex and I are out, and I think we've eliminated all but 1 possibility!

Unless Shap is considering some of Mozart's early or unfinished symphonies as No. 45, 47 or 51. One of my CD's has a K. 76 as Symphony No. 43

I had thought this one would be easy, after my last one....

Recap:

Symphony by W. A. Mozart, in a major key, odd numbered, higher than #30 not named after a city or part of the solar system. Not #35, 37, or 39.

I'm stumped, but here's a question:

If it's not a symphony from the official 1-41 list, then would it be one of the incomplete/fragment symphonies between No. 41 and 51?

All right, let's go the other way. #33 in B flat major, K319.

It is indeed Symphony No. 47 in D Major - K97 (K73m)

I know there is some issue with the numbering, and it is actually an earlier, unnumbered symphony, but it is included in most 'complete symphonies' collections as No. 47, such as here, here, and here.

I really didn't think this one would be so difficult. :D

Congrats Hex!

That multiple guessing strategy is paying off nicely. :rofl:

Now we know Shapley's pattern. He is targeting works with the number of the 30Q.

I was surprised I got by with it this time. I figured when they asked the "number higher than 30" question, somebody would catch on.

'course, it'll get harder as we get to 30Q-#200+, I won't be able to find many opus numbers or symphonies listed that high. I think P.D.Q. Bach had some pieces numbered in the four to five digit range, though. :D

Yea, I get carried away sometimes by replying over and over with guesses, so I'll control myself next time. And hey, I'm still learning the ropes of 30Q :ashamed:

But there's a slight problem here: I asked the question "is the symphony in D major" because there were at least 3 odd numered symphonies between 43 and 51 in D major. I wasn't guessing there, but trying to eliminate some more. So I didn't win this one, but my question made Shapley reveal the answer :mrgreen:

:oops: Sorry, I misread your post as "Is it the symphony in D major?" I didn't look to see that there were others in D major?

I guess, technically, you won your own 30Q Shapley :)

Well, I ain't doin' another one, since, technically, I didn't win the last one. :D
