The Great Composer Quiz – August 12, 2020
This time, it’s a linguistics Quiz. This Great Composer was well educated and liked to tell a good joke, but he would often tell it in four languages – English, French, German and Italian. A colleague of our Great Composer said he had a “natural propensity to wit and humour and he might have been as great a master of the English language as Jonathan Swift. Our Great Composer also loved art, and in his long life amassed an extensive and varied collection of paintings and prints, including two Rembrandts. So who was this multilingual man with the great paintings, this Great Composer?
