Classical cartoonist and generally wonderful music geek Eugene Chan has created the ultimate quiz. Here it is, for your pianistic pondering and enjoyment. And be warned: some of the questions are pretty hard.
Eugene Chan has made his mark as an illustrator with delightfully simple cartoons about the life, and cringe-worthy musings of pianists and classical musicians. His work is shared widely on his Facebook page, often attracting attention from some of the biggest names in classical music.
In May, Eugene embarked on something different: a series of cartoons of opening chords in famous works of piano music, inviting his followers to guess the piece.
Take a look at his offerings below, and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We've given it a try, and there was quite a bit of head-scratching and running to the piano. Good luck!
(and just be warned, the answer is revealed below)
