My guess is Ysaye, but I can't find a photo of him sporting facial hair.
Jnless he played with Mendelssohn-Bartholdy using a ouija board, rather unlikely  ;D.

Yes!
Alas the Servais website isn't yet available in English...but it is really well documented. His granddaughter is "the" Misia Sert !

Let's hope the Servais villa can be saved:

Yeah. I thought it had to be a cellist from the original question. I was thinking Franchomme or maybe Offenbach but neither fit the rest of the description. Only when you said Belgian.

Someone can have my spot setting up, if that's how it works. I don't generally know much about composers' biographies.

You guys fly way above my head :-[.

So getting in where I can! Which work, which was mentioned on this forum in the last week or so, has the heavy brass playing just one note, with the exception of a single trombone which plays two?

Yes, a nice perspective. Btw, the statue was deisgned and executed by his son-in-law, a Polish sculptor.

Now, how about Irons' quiz? Any ideas, for I have none.  :)

In which the brass plays just one note save for a trombone which plays two? Hmmm, is there any such beast? I reckon if there is it's certainly not by a German.  :laugh:

 You are right not by a German, and before you ask, not by a Brit either. :laugh:
