Excellent choices. I know nothing about string technique so missed that one. Also managed to spell Mussourgsky wrong, even though I have included him in one of my soon-to-be-submitted quizzes! Chances are that I will enter it correctly thanks to you. (Hey, I'm 80....my memory isn't what it used to be!)

Glad you liked the quiz, looking now I see I have a bit of a bias towards string techniques rather than other instruments. I'll have a look at your classical music quizzes!

I've taken most of your quizzes and did not detect any bias. I majored in piano and have been teaching it forever, so I have to make an effort to remember that there are other instruments....oh and singers!
