4BR Quiz: Weekend quiz

Time to recall those epic moments at the Royal Albert Hall last weekend with our Friday quiz.

Toitan
  Who was the heroic Titan in the making?

We have three study scores of Hermann Pallhuber's test-piece, 'Titan's Progress' plus commemorative programmes from the National Finals to give away if you can answer our brain teaser question.

So why not buy a few downloads of the performances from the Albert Hall and sit back with score in hand and find out where the mistakes were made...

Question:

Who was the eponymous hero in the making in author Jean Paul's 1802 novel 'Titan' — both the analogous inspiration for Mahler's 'First Symphony' and the central character of Hermann Palhuber's test-piece?

1. Alban Berg
2. Albano de Cesara
3. Damon Albarn
