Can you guess who was crushed by an umbrella stand, which composer became a bit of a weird recluse and who pushed pennies as a bank clerk (or who didn't)? How much do you think you know about the composers behind the music? Play our classical version of Two Truths, One Lie now to find out.

See if you can avoid falling for those commonly held misconceptions and myths, and separate the facts from the fiction. A few of these left our presenters stumped and embarrassed - why don't you have a go and let us know in the comments how you did!
