Guessed Debussy. Got Dvorak first, Debussy second. Might have guessed Dvorak had I known anything about the man, of course, but I didn't

Beethoven
Tchaikovsky
Schumann

I could have called it, too. I am a moody, brooding, cynical, homosexual with a tendency toward outright pessimism.

Hopefully, I won't follow in Mr. Schumann's footsteps: marry a more acclaimed pianist than myself, fall into madness, and attempt suicide.

I got Robert Schumann, which is strange as I've never played a single Schumann piece and rarely listen to him.

Franz Schubert.

I predicted Beethoven, because he is definately my favorite, but I don't know much about Schubert, except that he is "The Lieder King"

LOL

Then it goes Chopin, Mozart and so on so forth.

What is the grading system, I wonder?
