You say "last name only" but give no credit for "Strauss".

I tried typing in "Strauss" TWICE ... and was surprised to get NO credit for it on either occasion!! And then I read that the only other comment posted was for the same problem ... and you said you were going to fix this... Have you done so? Please do and thanks!

Strauss has been a problem from the beginning! Haha. I lost my password for the site, and I haven't opened it in a long time, that is why I was unable to change the names. Do you know how to edit a quiz?

Very random and subjective answers, that really need to have clues to help identify them. I typed in a whole bunch of major composers who are not up there: Purcell, Elgar, Delius, Berg, Schoenberg, Webern etc etc. And by Williams, you mean John Williams of movie theme fame? He hardly belongs on this list before any of the others I mentioned.

The point of the quiz to show how many classical composers you know, so they do not need clues. Williams is Vaughn Williams, and all of the composers you named will be put once I know how to edit my quizzes. Do you know?? Thank you for your feedback.

He might mean Vaughn Williams ... . Still no Strauss. And there are quite a few. What about Sousa? Widor? And all of the ones above? ...

Yes, I did mean Vaughn Williams. Sousa, I know, but I do not count him as a Classical Composer, even though he is a good one. Widor, I do not know. I will add them now. Thank you.

Yes. Quizmaster has spelled his name wrong. Vaughn Williams should not be accepted but Vaughan should! How did you select this particular group of composers?

Nice to see some lesser-known ones on there ^_^ Just one issue: the correct spelling is "Vaughan Williams". :)

Any more American composers - I was pretty surprised by no Gershwin or Barber. The omission of Holst and Britten is puzzling as well. I also thing de Falla and Albéniz should be included.

Just saying, the choice of the composers in the quiz is quite subjective, and although it is good fun to play to kill time, it seems quite inappropriate if you want this quiz to be nominated. Plus, the title says "classical music composers" yet there are a mix of Baroque, Classical, Romantic and even some Modern era composers.
