You are correct. Queston 17 asked if it was for solo piano. I've edited the post to reflect this.

The piece was for piano and voice, but voice was not counted as an instrument, so the piano is classified as solo, despite there being parts for two performers. Confusing, to me at least. But, the purpose of the 30Q is to entertain and educate, and I think it has achieved both of those goals. :)

how about we avoid calling an accompanying piano "solo" in the future? :roll:

You're right. I dropped the ball on the "solo piano" thing. I thought by saying that vocal was not considered an instrument for the purposes of this 30Q that it would help things a bit, but it just confused the issue more.

Not a problem. It's not like we're being graded on this.

It's just that, in my reading, solo is solo. Even if the pianist is the singer, I don't consider the piano piece to be a solo. But that is simply MHO.

Have a Happy Beethoven's Day!
