Default Pagginni -Close but no Cigar

The elements of cut time articulaton while retaining tight melodies and harmony, as in Pagginni and Vivaldi shared a simlitude to this peice. However, as an additional clue, This composer developed this peice with a severe handicap in that three fouths of the instrument he used were rather non-functional. He first played it first, and when his residence was more conducive to preparing a score, he then composed the peice.

Default J.P.S. - Name that composer

The folk tunes that are not classically masterpieces were first heard in the taverns and "watering holes" (an American way of stating a location frequented for the drinking alcohol) and countryside dance halls. My first choice is Strauss and his waltzes, which he first heard in rudimentary fashion in these location. Also know to be a "rounder" (one who frequented traverns and pubs) was the most recent of the classical composers, Dverok, however, the comments about the influences of the composers works, leads me to equally want to answer that it was Liszt and his infamous Hungarian Dances, which were also adopted from the folk music of the country side. I will stick with Strauss, if that is incorrect merely allow my other inclinations to serve as clues and keep all searching there encyclopedias of discogrophy.

Nicolo Paganini! (Less clues please, I could have got that from any of the clues you left!)

OK here's a hard one:-

I'm the new Elgar. (As in I have the same 'job'). I am still alive today. I'm an English contemporary composer now living on an island in Scotland. I have a double-barrel surname.

too easy...

J.S. Bach


My turn:
This Austrian was one of the pioneers of atonality, especially 12-tone music. According to Richard Strauss, "He'd be better off shoveling snow."

Easy Peasy!

Arnold Schoenberg.

Ok then, here's another.

This composer has the same surname as the second syllable of his teacher's surname.

That wasn't supposed to be that easy!

Alban Berg? (I think he studied with Schoenberg...)


The premiere of one of this composer's operas was attended by a cat...who wandered on stage during the performance.
