Anyway, one more finding: track 19 is "Bransle de Champagne" from Poulenc's Suite Française.

Yes it is ! A most lovely suite from a very great piano composer. Keep going !

Your compilation is driving me crazy.
Yet, I've got one more answer: Track 7 is from Fantasia Baetica by de Falla.

It's not that bad, one has to move focus to a composer's style, which is a good exercise. I smell some Ginastera and Satie (could be?), but currently cannot nail anything else. I am afraid I have run out of munitions. :?

11: Reger? This is obviously Bach-inspired. If not Reger, then Busoni.

I know I quit, but I think I've found one: #3 = Bartok - from Microcosmos Vol. V: 132, major seconds

Cool, I have zero idea what is going on! You'll have to leave this up for a bit when the contest ends, too.

Looks like this round is more difficult than I had thought :D
Seeing as everybody is stuck, perhaps I should drop a hint.
The 7 composers still to be identified (remember they're all different), are, in no particular order:

- The greatest Czech composer
- The greatest Brazilian composer
- The two greatest Russian composers
- The greatest French composer
- Plus two other illustrious and fairly well-known Frenchmen

Piece of cake now, right ?

:lol:

My guesses (In no particular order)

- The greatest Czech composer

Smetana

- The greatest Brazilian composer

Moupou (spelling?)

- The two greatest Russian composers

Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky

- The greatest French composer

Satie :wink:

- Plus two other illustrious and fairly well-known Frenchmen

Ravel and Debussy



But I should receive no credit because I have not guessed the piece name[/b]

Thanks for the tip. The greatest Brazillian composer is Villa-Lobos (as I recently learned) #16 is Villa Lobos is Shoo Shoo Little Bird from Cirandas.

The greatest Czech composer could also be Dvorak. :roll: but I think Smetana is better. :wink:
