Hey everybody!

I was thinking...A music trivia, brain-teaser, quiz-bowl, type of thing is just what this forum needs. Perfect during those seasonal 'posting brownouts'. Let the games begin!

Okay, to make this go more smoothly we need to agree on some ground rules.

1- At any given moment, only 1 person is allowed to pose questions and/or new material. That person is said to be, "in control of the board".

2- The person who first correctly answers the most questions, wins the game and the right to pose the next set of Q's.

3- Google-ing is allowed. However, try to come up with your answers through honest thought, not just a reflex google search.

4- All posts in this thread should remain mostly on topic...mostly.

5- Use of Pianosociety bandwidth for posting audio clips is allowed (as per Robert). Bit rates should be limited to 96kbps.

6- Any copyrighted audio should be limited to 30 second clips. Posting audio clips for this purpose does not constitute copyright infringement.

7- After the end of each round of Q&A, audio clips should be deleted by the poster, to save space.

8- In the event of a tie, there shall be a tie-breaker question posted by the one in control of the board. The person who first answers the tie-breaker question correctly wins.

9- At any time, the winner may give control of the board to anyone else.

10- Quizzes may cover any topic. However, at least half of each round of Q's should be about classical piano music.

11- The questions may be posed in any form: textual, audial, visual---the more variety, the better!

I'll be working on a set of audio clips for the first round...this could take a while...in the meantime, let's make small talk.

Has anyone seen the new episode of South Park? The Easter Bunny...PEEEEEEPS! :lol:

Working...
Pete

Hey, it's different now. I swear the first time I listened I heard piano. Or maybe this is the second one? Or is this the one that schmonz guessed correctly? Or...forget it...I don't know what it is, anyway. Can we have more hints?

I'm completely stumped. :?

Schmonz is in an unloseable position. Will someone tie the game?

I don't think I have ever heard this snippet before. It is certainly not 'familiar repertoire' and because of that, a fragment should be considerably longer.

I know I've heard this before. Is it from the 1940 Disney movie Fantasia? I can't remember, but I think I heard this in a movie.

Am I getting warmer?

Not here. It's freezing. :(

I think Julius is right - it's something by Rachmaninoff. (or Stravinski, or Prokofiev, or Tchaikovsky)

I was referring to the Scriabin piece that is no longer attached

We were treated (in south LA) to three hours of sleet this afternoon. Last week we were swimming.

About the questions, Kschyschtoff do you have a hint for us?

Yeah, and us Midwesterners are enjoying the nice 28 degree F weather (-2 deg. C.), two weeks ago it was 84 F. (23 C.) :roll:


I think Kschystoff forgot about us.
