John Adams - unfortunately I think we had this question recently...or then again maybe it was one of the other sites I visit!

I visit an awful lot of quiz sites so could be any of about a dozen. Anyway, the title character in Alban Berg's opera Lulu, set in the 1880s, is murdered in the final scene. Who is her murderer?

No, the murder is not real but the opera was set in 1888 if that helps...

I don't think anyone's going to get this - in the opera Lulu is murdered by Jack the Ripper.

Taking its name from the Latin word for a goat, what name is given to a light, whimsical piece of classical music?
