With such an early guess, I think someone does not want to have it. ;)

You've narrowed it down to a number, Shap, and did most of the work, you certainly deserve the 30Q crown this time. :D

It all depends on whether 19 = Y. :D

I let you take the guess. I've got a short day today anyhow, I have to leave in a couple of hours.

19. No

LB's cello concertos don't have 1, 2, 3 numbers, they only have opus numbers that start with G.

Was it arranged by someone else, or is it attributed to some other composer?

If neither, my guess: Cello concerto in D, Op.34

20. No

Guess is incorrect.

The new rule is if it remains unsolved, the last person to make a guess or last person to ask a question (if no guesses) inherits the next 30Q.

The new rule comes into effect from 30Q #66 onwards. :twisted:

Naxos has them numbered:

Naxos listing for Boccherini Cello Concertos

I"m not sure who assigned them numbers. The B flat major G-482 concerto is No. 9.

G-476, his other well-known concerto (D major), is No. 7. That was the one I was working toward with my leading line of questions.

Thanks for that info, Shap. Eliminated are #9 , G 482 in B-flat major, and #10, G483, Op.34

So, there are 12 Cello Concertos, according to Naxos.

That leaves possibly # 1 to 8, and # 11 and # 12, since it seems they are all in "major" keys. :shock:

does the key signature have two or more sharps?
(D major has 2, A major has three, all other keys in the eligible concertos have less or none).

How about Cello Concerto #6 in A major then?
