Here’s my GREAT CD GIVEAWAY under a bit of influence from “MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL”:
Not long ago I had something of a re-launch of my 2nd CD, “CHACONNE D’AMOUR” by putting audio clips of it onto my website, http://rkviolin.com Clips from my 1st CD, “THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT”, had been up for some time. These are now both available for purchase through my site. But I’d like to offer fellow v.commies a chance to win my CD for free! All you have to do is be the first one to successfully answer three simple questions. The first one to ring in successfully wins my 2nd CD. OK, what the heck? BOTH CD’s!
But before starting, read the fine print – or imagine an announcer talking really fast:
Void where prohibited. People under 18 please consult your parents. I am the sole judge and jury of this quiz and my decision is final. Anyone who disagrees with me will be cast into the VALE OF ETERNAL PERIL. Anyone who annoys me in any way will be cast into THE VALE OF ETERNAL PERIL. Anyone who…well, you get the idea!
No harmful results have been reported as a result of listening to my CD’s. Occasional humming along has been noted as well as moderate-to-severe enjoyment. If such symptoms persist, consult your violin teacher and order more of my CD’s for your friends.
No animals were harmed during the making of these CD’s. Some bow hairs broke and a nearby dog howled – but that’s about it!
1. What’s your name?
2. What’s your favorite color?
3. Which of the following instruments was Jascha Heifetz most well-known for a. flute
WOAH!! Not so fast! I want to give away a couple of CD’s but I’ve got to make it a little more challenging than that! Here are the real questions all in the category of violin concertos:
1. Name 3 concertos in F# minor.
2. Name 2 concertos where the cadenzas, already written by the composer, have some orchestral accompaniment at some points.
3. As we know, most concertos begin with an orchestral introduction. Some, like the Beethoven and Brahms have long intros; some like the Mendelssohn, very short ones. But some have no intro at all. They begin with either the violin and orchestra starting together or the violin starting alone. I can think of 6 violin concertos with no orchestral intro. Can you come up with 5?
4. Bonus, extra credit question. It doesn’t count for the contest, but you get bragging rights: What is the average air speed of a swallow?
