You are correctez-vous. :lol:

But please name the piece. Opus/number and/or the full title of the piece.


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.

Uh oh - that means it's probably wrong.

: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.

These days I hate it! There is too much snow on the path so I either go to the health club, or use my own treadmill at home and try to find something on TV to take my mind off of how bored I am. Outside is better because I run with my ipod, so music and nature keeps me happy.

Just as long as nothing hurts, keep at it. :wink: How long have you been running?

PS: 72hrs remain for Alf to tie it up, then all shall be revealed.

Sorry but I haven't the foggiest about #6! Juuf wins this hand.
