This is good page, great for my students.
But could you please consider removing that dreadful Toccata and Fugue in d minor which for far too long has been gravely misattributed to J S Bach? Instead you could use the piece often nicknamed the "Dorian" Toccata and Fugue, or the Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C (which are legitimate Bach pieces). The authorship of the organ piece known as the Toccata and Fugue in d minor remains disputed, but the idea that JSB ever wrote that piece is becoming increasingly ludicrous. (by the way, I am an organist, and composer, and have played a lot of Bach).
There was a minor mistake in one of the pieces. at some point, I heard a 4-hands adaptation of the Mozart "facile" sonata by Grieg. however, only Mozart's sonata was in the choices, and not Grieg's adaptation. Should be corrected.
There are not enough choices for the classical music quizzes. Too many Russian composers, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, Brahms hungarian dances. There should be more composers and types of music: more violin concertos, violin sonatas, symphonies, coral music, chamber music.
Create your own resource oriented to the English-speaking user and impose your own rules there.
Since this site was created primarily for Russian-speaking and is focused on their cultural environment, it can be said that Russian composers are not enough here.
Is it possible to make 'show all' button additionaly to 'Show next 10'? I'd been clicking it for a minute to find a piece, then I accidentaly clicked another link... and now I have to make all that clicks again...
