Was the composer born in a nation that includes, or borders a nation that includes, the Alps?

If I understand right that this was 1779, then yes.

No.

Hex, it's the job of the 30Q'er to google and wiki for years and events, not the poor souls coming up with all those questions. :P ;)

Does the composition feature a highlighted instrument(s)? If so, is at least one of them a keyboard instrument?

For those not wanting to Google - the date of the composition is now placed between 1779 (Napoleon attends military school) and 1820 (Whaleship Essex is sunk by a whale).

Is the composer from what is now the Czech Republic? (I had said Austria, but overlooked that it bordered the Rhine.)

Was it composed in the 19th century?

While I am waiting for Mr. Hex to appear,
I'll ask insert a few queries and drink some more beer.

Are there vocalists among the performing troupe?
Is the piece written for a small chamber group?

And just one more, to aid further discussion,
Does the piece include strings, brass, and percussion?

Well, I almost replied in the nick of time... almost :wink:

I'll answer thee,
these questions three:

11. Are there vocalists among the performing troupe?

No.

12. Is the piece written for a small chamber group?

Yes.

13. Does the piece include strings, brass, and percussion?

Since this question includes "and," I could say no, but instead I'm gonna split this into two questions if you guys don't mind.

13. Does the piece include strings, brass?

Yes.

14. Percussion?

No.

I won't count this question since I posted a reply to Shapley while you were posting, confirming that it isn't a solo composition.
