I got 11. But it would have been much more interesting if we could have heard a sample of their music instead of seeing their portrait. smile


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Got 15. The earlier names in portraits are easier to recognize. Missed a few later names in photos.
Guessed the women’s names. They tended to be behind men in history.

I got 16, but MANY were guesses. It was literally, "She looks like a.... 'Debbie'"... correct! With some of the more recent ones, I could narrow the choices down.

17. I don't know the really young ones.

I recognised Tallis, even though I clicked the wrong one for some reason, so it should have been 18.

I got 16. I have no clue who are the 3 contemporary ones, I guessed but none of the 3 worked. Tallis was difficult; I read his bio a long time ago so I wasn't completely sure though his picture was familiar.

16/19. Most I knew. A couple guesses, like when the cut off portion of the picture said "inglese compositore" I knew not to pick an italian name! I knew the women. I can't believe I didn't recognize Leonard Bernstein, though.

I got 12 and a few of those were just wild guesses. I've never even heard of some of them much less know what they look like.
