#7 is correct. 1 point for Chris.

(#8 - no, not my house. Think organ.)

Ah, Das Bachhaus in Eisenach. Too easy with the hints :lol:

Yes, that's right. 1 point

And here's a picture of my real house. It is a little like Bach's after all.

And for everybody's information, I'm going to drop some really big hints in about 6 hours from now.

3. What key signature did Chopin use most often?


Not sure, I think 4 flats, and A flat major the most frequently used tonality.

Quote:
10. Chopin often frequented the Hotel Lambert on the île St-Louis in Paris. Which one of Chopin’s good friends painted frescoes inside the mansion?


Delacroix (again, not sure)

Quote:
18. Who wrote the following in a letter?


Mozart (quite sure, I googled... :oops:)

Not really been active in the game threads. Sorry, too much other things going on. This one I know for sure.
Definitely A-flat major.

Coccobill is correct with #3, 10, and 18 - 3 points

Robert is also correct with #3 and I'm giving him a point too since he's here. :)

results so far: Chaotic and Kschyschtoff tied with 6 points each
Joe and Coccobill tied with 3 points each
Chris - 2 points
Cydonia - 1 pt.
Syntaxerror - 1 pt.
Robert - 1 pt.

Hints for last two questions 1 and 11. One has to do with the Greatest Show On Earth and the other has to do with an inventor.

Ok, I guess nobody knows these answers. #1 - The little man's name was General Tom Thumb, a famous midget who worked for P. T. Barnum of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. Barnum brought Tom Thumb (real name Charles Sherwood Stratton) to Paris in 1845 and they visited George Sand at the sqaure d'Orleans. Delacroix and Chopin went over see him too.

#11 is Bartolomeo Christofori, the inventor of the piano.

So...game over and there's a tie between Chaotic and Kschyschtoff. Guess you guys will have to fight it out or maybe we could have a piano play-off? You could each submit a recording of your playing something short and we have to vote on the best one. (I'm kidding, I don't care who wants to go next, as I think everybody who has been playing has taken a turn. Let me know if I am wrong)

Yep I was sure it was Cristofori too. But I could not find the image of that particular piano on Google image search. Should have voted anyway :x

Make the next quiz if you want. I'm still busy with Glinka and Beethoven so I'll make one another time.

Okay, Kschyschtoff - You go. And can you do it fast? I'm kind of bored this week.
