    Composer: Rossini?

    Seriously, why not consider posting in one single thread, instead of many with few replies? With one thread it would be easier to search through the quizzes later. I do appreciate you for uploading the clips and making this quiz - I'm sure it will be helpful to someone not familiar with the works one composer or another.

    It's the Furiant from Act II of Smetana's Bartered Bride.

    Haha! So did I, at first. Indeed, I scrolled through all sixteen Slavonic Dances, to no avail, before realizing that it was from Smetana's Bartered Bride.

    Wrong, wrong, you are all wrong it is “The Contapation Waltz from Beethovens opera Semale.

    Yes, it's the 'Furiant' (a type of Czech dance) from Smetana's 1866 opera 'The Bartered Bride'
