    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.
