    Several of these answers are wrong: No.2, Haydn wrote at least 104 symphonies, not 12!! (the confusion may be that his last 12 are known as the 'London Symphonies') Paganini was a viloinist not a pianist. I've never heard of him 'mutilating' his hand either, though he may have suffered form a condition known as 'Marfan's Syndrome' And the Toy Symphony is now known not to be by Haydn at all, though in the past it used to be attributed to him. Sorry to be a nerd!!

    Haydn wrote a lot more than 12 symphonies - 106 numbered ones at least!

    Missed some of them Jacks. Nice to have a classical music quiz for a change.

    Didn't know some of them so guessed. Some are incorrect its been commented, I probably guessed these. I don't know very much about classical music, but I have picked up things here and there so something must have stuck in my brain.
