Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

You are Dmitri Shostakovich!

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

Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

You are Modest Mussorgsky.

You are a Romantic period psycho who's drunk more often than not. You died of this affliction, not surprisingly. Your famous works include "Night on Bald Mountain" and "Pictures at an Exhibition."

Pyotr Chaikovsky
You are Pyotr Chaikovsky.

I AM the Real Chaikovsky! Considered by most Westerners to be the greatest Russian composer of all, most late 19th Century Russians think you're actually too Westernized in your musical tendencies. Despite this criticism, as well as the flak you had to take for your preference of Y-chromosomes, your ballets "The Nutcracker" and "Swan Lake" are upheld as among the greatest and most popular pieces of all time.

Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

You are Sergei Rakhmaninov.

You lived in the early Twentieth Century and were well known for your compositional, conducting, and piano skills, yet you are melancholy despite this talent. Your famous works include your nearly-impossible piano concerti.

Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

You are Aleksandr Borodin.

Son of a 19th Century Russian prince and a...non-royal...mother, you went to medical school and became a biochemist. Most people, however, (and probably your twenty cats as well) agree that they'd trade all of your scientific discoveries for another set of "Polovetsian Dances."

Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

Okay, here's what i got:

You are Modest Mussorgsky.

You are a Romantic period psycho who's drunk more often than not. You died of this affliction, not surprisingly. Your famous works include "Night on Bald Mountain" and "Pictures at an Exhibition."


But I just got home from a party with psychologists and vodka, so I am excused!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

Well, I just want to say that you are all very good composers.

Purple Rainbow, you may be drunk, but you're a freakin' genius.

Re: Which Dead Russian composer are you?

You are Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Considered the leader of the 19th Century Composer group "The Mighty Handful," you are indeed the teacher among them. Your orchestration skills are superbly colorful, and are explained in your book on the topic, but works like "Scheherezade" explain your mastery better.


Cool! I love Scheherezade!
