Quiz Description

[Edit now that the quiz is closed: you can listen to the full movement for each sound clip at this YouTube playlist]



You may want to grab a pair of headphones for this one. And yes, it'll take a little longer to complete that usual. Thanks for sticking with it!

Each question links to an audio clip -- in most cases, approximately one minute long. In every case, the formal or common title of the excerpted work (including names of movements) contains at least one of the following:

  • the name of a modern-day country in English or cognate to the English name (e.g.: Dominican Republic, Repรบblica Dominicana)
  • the demonym for a person from a modern-day country (e.g.: Dominican)
  • the same name that a modern-day country is named after, but in a different language (e.g.: Dominique, Domingo)

The titles of the work may also contain other geographic terms, like names of regions or cities (e.g.: Quisqueyan, Hispaniola, Santiago) but those will not be considered relevant in this quiz.

Your task is to give the modern-day COUNTRY listed in the title of the work.
If more than one country is present, you need only give one.


For example, if the work was titled "An Overture to Japanese Baseball Players named Dominique in Seoul ", you would get credit for answering "Dominican Republic" or "Japan" but not "South Korea".

I took these all out of my digital music library, so I have the artist attributions for almost all of the clips but I'm missing one. Sorry, accordion player!

When you see the answers, they will be in the format (flag) COUNTRY - Composer - Title of work (except if you're on Windows 10, in which case: no flags)
