Welcome to ‘Name that
Music and the Composer’

Game time! We’re going to expand your repertoire knowledge in a fun way. See if you can name the piece in this multiple choice quiz. It’s simple… just click on the play button for each question and choose which of the three links is the correct answer. There are fourteen questions in total.

The first seven questions deal with Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, and the second movement of some of their piano sonatas. These classical composers have unique styles, even if they share some common writing techniques. The more you listen, the more you will be able to distinguish their compositions.

The last seven questions deal with Schumann, Chopin and Brahms. These Romantic Era composers are also very distinctive in their approaches to composition.

Why is it important to be able to tell who wrote what? in order to create your own style of writing, it is most helpful to know the existing styles that are already established. Influences of the past have always played their role in shaping music in the present.

Well, that's enough philosophizing. On with the show!
