It's not funny kalhabamut. Countertenor is a male voice range indeed, as well as sopranist. Take this :p : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vuwI6IfXYo

I've never heard of sopranist, so looked at the link. The only high male voices I'd heard of were castrati.

Well, a castrato is high-pitched because, well... but there aren't any more in our time (fortunately). Sopranists rather work their falsetto.

If by "it" you mean your stepping in to over explain something that didn't require it, thereby destroying the joke, yes, I agree, that wasn't funny at all.

I'm a french-speaker, and we never call it "Les mis". Anyway, it's just a question of consistency, if "Phantom" and "Lion King" are accepted, then "Misérables" should be as well.

Most English speakers who know the musical will call it Les Mis. Seeing as it is most commonly performed in English, I think they are allowed to.

Brahms is not a classical composer. He is a romantic composer (the musical time period after the classic period).

I'm assuming classical is used in the broader, more generally understood sense, not in the more precise sense you're referring to. In the popular conception the term 'classical' covers baroque, classical and romantic as well as conceivably various other genres either side of those.

Oct 12, 2016
Is not Bach a baroque composer? I think the use of classical to mean orchestral is well-known. Most people would recognise both Bach and Brahms as classical, as opposed to jazz, folk, etc. I'm pretty ignorant so please do correct me if I'm wrong. Good quiz.

Just throwing this out there: I sang in a choir for a few years and people would just say "mezzo" for "mezzo-soprano". Don't know if it's common everywhere, though.
