This month, you can win a CD of the ensemble Sagittarius, if you know the answer to the question.

Last month's question was: at what age did Felix Mendelssohn compose his first String Quartet and when his second?

The answer was: Mendelssohn wrote his String Quartet no. 2 in A at the age of
18 (in 1827 - actually his first). He dedicated it to Ludwig von Beethoven. He com-
posed his String Quartet no. 1 in Es in 1829 (actually his second). Mendelssohn
was 20 years old at the time and he dedicated it to next door girl Betty Pistor.
The lucky winner is: C. Dubbeldam uit Baarland. Congratulations!Ensemble Sagittarius
