    Add a composer game

    Anyone for a game?

    I`ll start by posting the name of a composer. Then another person posts a composer whose name starts with the last letter of the name I posted. Composer last names only.

    Ex. Charles Ives; next post could be Robert Schumann.

    Ok, here goes- Richard Wagner
    ''Music, I feel, should be emotional first and intellectual second.'' - Maurice Ravel
    ''The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.'' - Michael Jackson

    Thanks for playing, gio, but you only need to name one composer, and the name you post should start with the last letter of the previous post. So the last name of the composer you posted should have started with R.

    So I`ll go from your last post-

    Franz Liszt

    Ralph Vaugh Williams

    Just heard part of his 'Lark Ascending' on the radio- very nice.
