Which Dead Russian Composer Are YOU?

Thanks to a guy I work with, I now know that...

If I were a Dead Russian Composer, I would be Dmitri Shostakovich!

I am a shy, nervous, unassuming, fidgety, and stuttery little person who began composing the same year I started music lessons of any sort. I wrote the first of my fifteen symphonies at age 18, and my second opera, "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District," when I was only 26. Unfortunately, Stalin hated the opera, and put me on the Enemy Of The People List for life. I nevertheless kept composing the works I wanted to write in private; some of my vocal cycles and 15 string quartets mock the Soviet System in notes. And I somehow was NOT killed in the process! And Harry Potter(c) stole my glasses and broke them!

Who would you be? Dead Russian Composer Personality Test



...which works out well, because I'm pretty sure he actually is my favorite Dead Russian Composer.

I know that, and I know which beverage I have to thank for the child who plays "Pictures at an Exhibition" on some kind of horn every evening in my building. Take the quiz, you'll see.
