Pretty straight forward. Name the pieces. Some are just fragments. "I can name that tune in"....just one chord?

Hopefully, after I'd made many nervous with my pianistic slash-and-burnery, the first one will elicit feelings of relaxation.

Go ahead, giggle at my note errors, I deserve it. :roll:

3. Beethoven, Sonata Op.27/1 (Adagio con espressione)
(beautiful, you should record the whole sonata and submit it in AR!)

5. Don't know, I smell a scriabinesque aroma.

7. Mozart, Sonata K.570 (Allegretto)



I'm afraid I cannot go further than that. :x

Well, looks like I won't be winning this round. I don't know any of these for sure. :x

No. 1 is so familiar, though. I know I've played it in some random book that I have around here. Now it's driving me nuts.

No. 4 sounds like something Italian.

No. 7 sounds like Mozart.

#2 is either Clementi or Scarlatti, I think it is the latter but to name the exact sonata would be impossible considering how many there are.

#4 is Tchaikovsky's Neopolitan Dance from the AftY (I tried to play this piece but the left hand was a b*** when I tried to add the right hand to it)

For #2, I just need the composer, the name of the piece (not the specific number, just the generic title, such as "prelude" or "sonata") and the key in which it is written. (Hint, the recording stops not at the end, hence the last note is not the tonic.)

Number 4 is right.

You're right on all 5! :lol:

Number 5: I'll post the next few notes and I bet you'll get it right away. This is just one chord from a very long piece for piano and orchestra. (Hint)

Number 3 is right; btw I think I should record it, too. I know the whole sonata but it had many technical errors. I haven't revisited it in about 10 years, so I may give it a go. Thanks.

Number 7 is of course, correct.

The score is:

Monica 5...okay, 0
JG......................1
Alf......................2

Anyone have an idea on #6? It's the opening bars on a composition for Piano and three other instruments.

I think I should get a half a point for getting 'something Italian' for No. 4. :P

No one guessed No. 1 yet? I just know I've heard this and even played it sometime. Sounds like an elegy or consolation. hmmmm....

Is #1 a Schubert composition? ...wait nevermind, it's too short to be composed by Schubert, if it was 20 minutes long, then I would bet it to be.

I give up...

Ok, I saw your hint on the other forum. No. 1 is a Romance, but still can't remember by whom. I looked through every book I have and can't find it.

Pete, if you don't want to reveal all the answers yet, can you please pm me the answer to this one? It's really driving me crazy now.

Well, all you stated was that it is a Romance. And it is by Faure. Does that not count?

Ok. FYI the title is Romance sans Paroles, Opus 17 Number 3.

So far it's a tie between JG and Alf, tomorrow, I'll post the next few notes of that "Scriabinesque" fragment. You'l recognize it right away, I think. Hint, it's a 20th century American quasi-jazz composition.

:lol:

I really don't have any idea about #5. It could well be Gershwin, Pete's hint seems to point in that direction.

OMG! Yes! Rhapsody in Blue! You are good lady!!! :shock: I never thought anyone could get that one.

(See what happens when we don't rush? :wink: )

Number 6 hint: the composition is for flute, piano, bass and percussion. The fragment is the opening line of the first movement.

Scores
MA-1
JG-2
ALF-2

Go on Monica, give us a three way. (Tie, that is.) Nathan's rubbin' off on me. (That sounds even worse! :lol:)

Correction:

JG-3
Alf-2
MA-1

Aw, now my double-entendres don't work. :cry: :lol:

The only one unanswered is #6.

It's Alf and Juuf! (Pianolady deserves special credit for #5, though. Go girl!)


PS, I went back to the ER night before last with pain (quite an understatement) in my sacrum. The MRI shows a partial tear in my piriformis muscle. Looks like surgery is probable. The outpatient procedure is pretty straightforward; a 3 inch incision is made in the buttock near the lumbar spine and the piriformis muscle is removed, relieving the pressure on the sciatic nerve. Luckily, it's not cancer as I was dreading. Cancer is our family curse. (That and asthma.)

I may never again run distances over 3 miles. :x Oh well, I'll just take up weightlifting again. I used to be pretty buff! :lol:

FYI, this is piriformis syndrome:

Funny - Too bad Nathan doesn't come around more often to see how he's rubbed off on all of us.

So, ok - we may have a two-way tie if Alfonso gets no. 6.

I can see where running would be painful in that area. I've been jogging almost daily - still trying to work off the holidays, but I have pain in my neck and shoulders. Weight training is good.

Nerve pain is far worse than a toothache, or an ice cream headache. Pain strains the heart, too. At the ER, my blood pressure was 170/120!

How do you like running? Learn from this fool; steady wins the race.

These days I hate it! There is too much snow on the path so I either go to the health club, or use my own treadmill at home and try to find something on TV to take my mind off of how bored I am. Outside is better because I run with my ipod, so music and nature keeps me happy.

Just as long as nothing hurts, keep at it. :wink: How long have you been running?

PS: 72hrs remain for Alf to tie it up, then all shall be revealed.

Well, nothing like the one in Baden Baden or any other world-class spa. I just go to some places in my town – Mario Tricoci’s or Coldwater Creek Spa. I get facials, pedicures, and of course massages – all kinds. Why, do you want to come with me? :lol:

And Alfonso, I think you are not that keen on jazz, but I have attached a track of the Claude Bolling/Jean Pierre Rampal CD for you to hear. I had it up on the site once before when I was chatting to another member about flute playing.

Part 1: Where in the World?


Diese place / city hosts a celebrant with ties to the last 10 days of February. From London you would have to travel about 520 miles per hour to reach this destination in one hour. There are no bodies of water around here. Also there is no cause for aerial displays to be held because of the time of year. Lastly citizens are not called "subjects".


Where in the world?

J - I don't know. I'm guessing it's somewhere in Germany? Leipzig, maybe? That's about 520 miles from London.

No, you're a marathon away. But there clues within my riddle that should give you away. This celebrant is / was a musician not some archaic thinker from 1265

Frederic Chopin part deux; from his DNA in paris cemetery implanted into a blank cell, multiplied by billions and then introduced into an embryo. :roll:

Ok, now I am totally lost. From your clues, I know that the city has to be 520 miles from London, right?
You used the German word, "Diese" - and now you mention Chopin, which would make sense as far as the dates go since he was born on either 2/22 or 3/1. But Poland is too far.

I give up.

sorry...chopin and poland have nothing to do w. the place. I was just responding to your question "To whom" knowing that you are infatuated with Chopin and if you could meet him, you would almost certainly swoon.

ok, yes - that's fine. Give me to Chopin. I guess I can tolerate that! :lol:

I still give up, though.

This round must've been hard to HANDEL.

So, given that Pete is gone, and contributions are few, I will reveal the answer.


Diese place / city [GERMAN] hosts a celebrant with ties to the last 10 days of February [WHO DIED? WHO WAS BORN IN THE LAST PART OF FEB.?].

From London you would have to travel about 520 miles per hour to reach this destination in one hour. [WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF LONDON AND THIS CITY? AND WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH THE CLUES ABOVE?]

There are no bodies of water around here. Also there is no cause for aerial displays to be held because of the time of year. [WATER? FIREWORKS?]

Lastly citizens are not called "subjects". [BUT ENGLISH CITIZENS ARE]


The city must be German and is the place of either birth or death of a person in the last part of February. This city has a connection with London either historically or through the birth, life, or death of the person of late February.

As we know by looking at the calender of Feb. G.F. Handel was born on the 23 of Feb. He was born in:

Halle, Germany.

The London clue was tied to his naturalization as an English subject. And Water and Fireworks because of his famous compositions titled as such.


Hard, I know. I wish I would've made it easier. :roll:

I think that we should postpone the game until Pete and others come back because there is no competiton.
