Think you can identify classical music's big themes from a glimpse of the music? Time to test yourself in this new quiz.

French clarinettist and entirely laudable music geek Guillaume Jouis is the man behind those super-stylish classical accessories you may have seen over the past few months on social media. His designs of classical mugs, T-shirts and more have been shared widely on Facebook.

His creations often feature the scores of famous classical works. So here's a quiz Guillaume recently penned, featuring some of those notated excerpts. 

Chances are you've heard most of these phrases, but can you recognise them in the score? Give it a try and drop us a message to let us know how you got on.
