How would you fare on this BBC quiz show's classical music round?

Robert Rowat

BBC Two has an academic quiz show called University Challenge on which teams from U.K. universities answer questions on a wide range of subjects, including classical music. (Think Reach for the Top on steroids.)

YouTube user Sleepy Noise has created and posted a compilation of the classical music rounds from the program's 44th and 47th seasons. It's the fourth such compilation to appear.

The questions are tough and include identification of short audio excerpts (Stockhausen!) and pictures of obscure musical instruments (hurdy-gurdy!). Watch below and put your classical music knowledge to the test:
