Okay, I've come up with another stupid idea (well, maybe I should stop calling them stupid ideas because the last one I started got 300 posts laugh ), and in this one someone will post a picture of a little tidbit of a piece of music (a measure, a few notes, whatever) and the rest of us will try to figure out what piece it's from. Concertos count; chamber pieces do not. For example, Person X posts this:

[Linked Image]

Person Y would then name the piece (Rachmaninoff 3/2) and then, if they wanted, post another picture.

This should be interesting. ha grin

Great idea - but perhaps not so much fun for someone (like me) who doesn't know how to post a "little picture of a little tidbit of a piece of music." grin

Of course, I'm always open to learning something new.

Okay - well, now you will learn something new! smile

The easiest option (this is the way I'm doing it) is to find an online copy of the score you'd like to extract something out of (most scores can be found on this site) and then take a screenshot of the part you want to put in your post. Then just use the image tool on the PW Full Reply screen to insert the image. smile

Nope, I think it's from a Debussy prelude...une Barque has 3 sharps and is written in quasi-perpetual motion!

Yes, I made sure I made up my own filename. It's a common thing to forget in little quizzes like this.

And it is by a composer who was a very early Steinway artist, and better known for his operas. But this one is a piano piece on a railway theme, with the addition of some bizarre morbidity.

BDB is correct. But it's not Arthur Sullivan.
I didn't know he was a Steinway artist.

Another hint: The composer was Italian.
