Dmitri Shostakovich, apparently. Thanks to Steve Pugh of VTT, and if you want to find out which dead Russian composer you would be, take the dead Russian composer test yourself.

    I’m also Dmitri Shostakovich it seems.
    “A shy, nervous, unassuming, fidgety, and stuttery little person” to boot.
    Come off it, I’m well above average height!

    Lol, what a fun post: I took the test (whose maker obviously has a thing for vodka) and I am Aleksandr Borodin who is described as the following:

    Son of a 19th Century Russian prince and a…non-royal…mother, you went to medical school and became a biochemist. Most people, however, (and probably your twenty cats as well) agree that they’d trade all of your scientific discoveries for another set of “Polovetsian Dances.”

    The test still exists. I’m Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, who is described as follows:

    Considered the leader of the 19th Century Composer group “The Mighty Handful,” you are indeed the teacher among them. Your orchestration skills are superbly colorful, and are explained in your book on the topic, but works like “Scheherezade” explain your mastery better.

    Here is my incomplete list of compositions. Obviously, dead composers can’t edit their own CVs. Can anyone remove the “Flailing in counterpoint” section from my Wikipedia article? ;-)
