Which Dead Russian Composer are you most like?
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 11:19:51 PM EST (GMT-5)

You are Dmitri Shostakovich!
Congratulations! You are a shy, nervous, unassuming, fidgety, and stuttery little person who began composing the same year you started music lessons of any sort. You wrote the first of your fifteen symphonies at age 18, and your second opera, "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District," when you were only 26. Unfortunately, Stalin hated the opera, and put you on the Enemy Of The People List for life. You nevertheless kept composing the works you wanted to write in private; some of your vocal cycles and 15 string quartets mock the Soviet System in notes. And you somehow were NOT killed in the process! And Harry Potter(c) stole your glasses and broke them!

You are Igor Stravinsky.
Known as a true son of the new 20th Century, your music started out melodic and folky but slowly got more dissonant and bizzare as you aged. You are a traveler and a neat freak, and very much hated those rotten eggs thrown at you after the premiere of "The Rite of Spring."


17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 1:32:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
Igor Stravinsky.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 8:56:06 AM EST (GMT-5)


You are Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.
Considered the leader of the 19th Century Composer group "The Mighty Handful," you are indeed the teacher among them. Your orchestration skills are superbly colorful, and are explained in your book on the topic, but works like "Scheherezade" explain your mastery better.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 9:55:19 AM EST (GMT-5)

You are Sergei Prokofyev.
You were born in the late 19th century and were a child prodigy, composing at a very young age. You kept this talent up, earning yourself quite a name and fully exploiting the bragging rights. You were disliked by Stalin, however, and you died the same day he did. Your most famous work is "Peter and the Wolf."

You are Pyotr Chaikovsky.
I AM the Real Chaikovsky! Considered by most Westerners to be the greatest Russian composer of all, most late 19th Century Russians think you're actually too Westernized in your musical tendencies. Despite this criticism, as well as the flak you had to take for your preference of Y-chromosomes, your ballets "The Nutcracker" and "Swan Lake" are upheld as among the greatest and most popular pieces of all time.

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 10:34:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
You are Aleksandr Borodin.
Son of a 19th Century Russian prince and a...non-royal...mother, you went to medical school and became a biochemist. Most people, however, (and probably your twenty cats as well) agree that they'd trade all of your scientific discoveries for another set of "Polovetsian Dances."

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 11:40:07 AM EST (GMT-5)

You are Modest Mussorgsky.

You are a Romantic period psycho who's drunk more often than not. You died of this affliction, not surprisingly. Your famous works include "Night on Bald Mountain" and "Pictures at an Exhibition."

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 11:44:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
Modest Mussorgsky is scary looking!
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 11:46:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
Haha, yeah he is. He also never finished a piece. He had serious psychological problems and drank all the time. His friend Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov finished most of it. Night on Bald Mountain is really good, though. Anyone who's seen fantasia knows it.

Thank you History of Music class.

I love The Rite of Spring. It's caveman music. It's so much fun to listen, too. It makes you want to go out at night and start a huge fire and dance around wearing a mask while listening to it.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/5/04 - 11:52:40 AM EST (GMT-5)

You are Sergei Rakhmaninov.

You lived in the early Twentieth Century and were well known for your compositional, conducting, and piano skills, yet you are melancholy despite this talent. Your famous works include your nearly-impossible piano concerti.

That's my other personality.

Shostakovich.
Incidently, I'm rehearsing a string quartet piece by Shostakovich that has been arranged for a full orchestra.
We are performing it in Feb.
Shostakovich's life is so interesting. I love how events in his life are conveyed through his music.

I got the same as staygold and guilty
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 1/16/05 - 3:14:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree, Quoll - Rite of Spring is the best music ever. So primal and full of emotion.

But I got Shostakovich on the test.
