I jumped the gun the other day. Raymond has submitted a quiz for us. And boy, is it a doozy! I’ve been laughing (and groaning) for half an hour as I read through it. I put it up here on a separate thread because it may get lost in the other thread.

There are eleven categories of questions. Here is an example of the questions and answers:
A – FELINE
1. Name some composers with feline tendencies. Answer: Kat-chaturian, Milhaud (pronounced “meeoh”), De Pussy, etc….there are more.


E – COLDS
1. What composers have colds? Answer: Tchai-cough-ski.

So now you get the picture. Get that creative mind turned on full blast and see if you can come with more answers. I have all the answers, so will not play, but I’ll help Raymond run this if he wants and put up answers as we go along.

I just talked to Raymond, and we have decided to post one category of questions with the answers every day beginning tomorrow. But in the meantime, see if you can think up some answers on your own.

Ok, a compromise: If a category has more than one question, I'll put up answers for half of the set each day. Otherwise, we will go into mid-January.

B--CANINE

1- Name some composers with canine tendencies.
2- What two composers are not always canine, but frequently so?
3-Name an operatic composer with canine tendencies
4-Name a violinist composer with canine tendencies.


Answers:

1. Johann Sebastian Bark
Ludwig van Bark hoven
Hugo Wolf
Franz Joseph Hyena
Bela Bark-dog
(also Pete's - Woof-gang Amadeus Mozart)

2. Jaques Often-bark and Ludwig van Bark-often
3. Richard Bark-ner
4. Nicolo Bark-anini

Insert a big groan here! (except I can't stop giggling)

I forgot to add two things:

(1)- Jaque Often-Bark made things even more canine by writing a Bark-arole

(2)- Thers is a pianist who is most canine when he is at home. Do you know who that is? It is Wilhelm Bark-house.
