you met Beethoven and he became irate and exploded in your face? I would punch him in the mouth.

I would time travel to talk to Chopin or Liszt.

Nope, a romantic wouldn’t kick you in the a**. Chopin and Liszt were beloved by their students, which is the reason they were chosen. Surely, Beethoven exploded because he couldn’t hear what you said; you should be forgiving

I would show him a Dudley Moore vid. He'd laugh.

If I punched Chopin he would die.

Is there something wrong with you? I’m asking for a friend.

The man was a tormented genius - a giant among composers . Have you no respect, compassion or self control? ha

He was also a lot smaller than I am, so I suspect that he would have kept it to himself.

Why do you people want to 'punch' anyone, especially in the 'mouth'??? What sense does it make?

Keep away from me! :-)

Heck, he wasn't even that tall. Grieg, Schubert, Ravel, Beethoven, Mozart, Wagner, Chopin and Brahms were all short guys (under 5'6"). In comparison, Liszt was a giant at 6 feet - and Prokofiev and Rachmaninov were gargantuan at 6'3" and 6'6" respectively. I'm sure the latter two could knock you to the ground, so be careful who you mess with in your time travels.. grin

I had hoped during the seven years since he joined that the OP would mature enough to stop these meaningless, often puerile posts wherein he contributes nothing.

I guess I can go on hoping.
