[GAME] Round 4 - Guess the 20th century composer
« on: March 17, 2008, 08:22:23 AM »
Last and final round from me...

To play, all you have to do is listen to the small clips, and take a guess who the 20th century composer is for each one, and then reply in this thread with your answers/guesses. It's ok to list the names of the composers or at least their initials so that we know that you do in fact know the answers....rather than saying "i know this one"...if for some reason you don't want to list the name or initials of the composer just send me a PM with your answers. A good suggestion for this game is that everyone who wants to make a guess, doesn't read any of the others until they have listened to the examples and posted.

Clip 9 (33 sec.), Clip 10 (55 sec.), Clip 11 (43 sec.),
Clip 12 (1'01), Clip 13 (57 sec.), Clip14 (33 sec.)

download clips here: http://www.speedyshare.com/123591817.html

some of these will be VERY easy for folks here.  :)

All superb pieces.

9. No idea.
10. Hmm... very jazzy. Is this one of Stravinsky's rags, maybe? Just another wild guess.
11. Vaughan Williams - Symphony No. 4
12. Berg - Violin Concerto
13. Schnittke - Concerto for Piano and Strings (Nice choice!)
14. No idea at all...

I haven't read the other replies yet, but I'm willing to bet that somebody has already revealed:

11. RVW 4th Symphony
12. Berg Violin Concerto

9. is most likely Schoenberg's 2nd SQ (but I haven't checked to confirm this. The last time I guessed Schoenberg I was wrong)
