Only got 10...just haven't thought about some of them for too long. This quiz is a good refresher for the less well known (and sometimes short-lived) Russian composers. Had to laugh when I saw Kabalevsky because I've typed him into every composer quiz and he's never there! (except on mine), so I didn't try. Just assigned one of his pieces to a student this week! HIs music for young students is excellent.
