The first five people to answer the following question correctly will get a free copy of “From Suzuki to Mozart: A History of the Repertoire in Suzuki Violin Books 1-10″

Who was the only composer who was also nobility in the Suzuki violin books?

“From Suzuki to Mozart” is a reference book for all Suzuki violin teachers, parents and students!

Tambourin was composed by Gretry who was a knight? Hope I’m right! Am I supposed to message you or post it? Sorry!

Jean-Baptiste Lully, though in truth he was not born into “nobility” himself, but after an amazing path which led him to come to the attention of the Court of Louis XIV for his talents and excellence in performance, dancing, and composition, he was elevated to the position of Royal Composer for instrumental music.That’s pretty close to nobility, will that do?

We have five winners! The answer I was looking for was Karl Ditters von Dittersdorf, but I have to say that Lully, who was ennobled for similar reasons (to take a job as a court official) also counts as a correct. Thanks for teaching me something new today!

Congratulations to the following people, who will be getting a book from me:

Merietta Oviatt
Linda Louise Ford
