Hello from Borodin! I tried going back over the "could be this, could be that" questions and changed the answers, one at a time. Borodin kept popping up, then Prokofiev twice, and Rimsky-Korsavov once. Well, Borodin was a chemist as well as a musician, so I guess I'm just as confused!

Stravinsky. Love the part that I get more dissonant and bizzare as I age!

I'm Aleksandr Borodin. Is anybody else him? I wanted to be Stravinsky too.... I like how complex his music is....

I came out Stravinsky the first time, but with just a couple of little changes came out Rachmaninoff the second time! I prefer the second one smile.gif

This is Sergei Prokofyev from beyond the grave. You might have missed the fact that I died, since another Russian of some note (not a musician) shuffled off this mortal coil on the same damned day as did I.

Borodin here! I think I'll have to go back and peruse my CD collection and see if I can identify more with his works now that I know we are linked in some ways.

Well I am Rakmaninhoff (I can't even spell it!), which is hard to believe, because he snubbed Balanchine, and Balanchine didn't use his music. Obviously I should drink more vodka.

I can guarantee this test is bogus, because it said I am a "neat freak." I am not. I am The Mess Fairy. I would have given Stravinsky hives.

Could be worse, could be Khachaturian.
