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.

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

Well, at least I'm Prokofiev. What a surprise, I thought I was Cesar Cui.

I'm Shostakovich, too -- I think this is rigged smile.gif (I'm really Tchaikovsky.)

Did anyone click all the vodka answers, just to see who that is?

I was secretly hoping to be Glazunov if I couldn't be Tchaikovsky, but alas frown.gif Melissa, I don't believe any of the ghosts you mentioned have yet reported for duty.

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.

By the way, if I were a Dead Russian Composer, I'd be --- Shostakovich.

Can't win 'em all, I guess.

I'm sure I have better things to do than click on all the vodka answers just to discover that I would be Modest Mussorgsky.
