    Well... I tried listening to them... and I have no clue.

    But if I had to guess...

    1.) Something by Couperin (the Great, of course), perhaps?
    2.) ?
    3.) ?
    4.) ?

    No idea really...

    Since it's so quiet here today, I've just listened to these again. My new guess is:

    1. Gurlitt
    2. Cznerny
    3. Burgmuller
    4. Kabalevsky

    Chopin and Liszt says dnt ever give up your project. You must knowthem as a friends and begining to explore them and find the ultimate truths. and it would be easier for you. I will update all the composers and op number on the 29/4/08. The date line is 28/4/08.

    By the way Monica,,,,you are veryclose to one of them :wink: :wink: :wink: why give up? Chopin says no.

    John I've got one for you... I'm holding something in my hand. It's larger than an atom but smaller
    than the state of Texas. Can you guess what it is???

    Even Chopin, whom I adore, was not always the best judge of knowing how much time he should devote to his 'project'. In one of his letters to a friend after his first public performance in Vienna, he wrote that if the people do not appreciate his talents, then he can always go into 'house painting' for a career. :lol: ( I think that is so funny). ( It was probably just a joke, though. I'll have to look in that book, again.)

    Ok, John, I'll keep thinking, but don't hold your breath.
