CLASSIC FM PUZZLE BOOK


CLASSIC FM PUZZLE BOOK

FOREWORD ALEXANDER ARMSTRONG    Book Number: 88766    Product format: Paperback

Put your musical and puzzle knowledge to the test with Classic FM's book of 100 classical conundrums - tricky trivia, complex wordplay, visual teasers and more. The sections are named 'Adagio', 'Accelerando' and 'Molto Vivace', each increasing the difficulty for the puzzler as they work through each task. At the end of the book, the solutions are not only provided with clear working out for you to confirm your victory or uncover the truth behind the mystery, but the reader can also find pages for notes which can be used for tracking your thoughts on each riddle. Exercise your grey matter by answering the wordplay task 'what do you get if you add an insect to the edge of a garment?', complete the 'sudo-key' using letters from the major and minor keys, and discern between words which are either the name of a cheese or title of an opera. Demonstrate your musical knowledge, from a quiz that will ask the thinker to translate the basic Italian music terms and a 'presto' crossword with classical clues, to discerning the story of an opera from a series of emojis organised in a succession which signifies the plot. The tasks also include brilliant images to illustrate some of the questions such as a spot the difference illustration depicting a conductor with his orchestra and bold outlines of instruments which are shown during the riddle that encourages the puzzler to divine the owner of each instrument from each of their clues. The questions can be responded to in teams, with the older team members fielding some of the middle-of-the-bat questions about Beethoven and Andrew Lloyd Webber while younger teammates take on the flashier Thomas Adès and Yannick Nézet-Séguin subjects. Paperback, images, 288pp.
