Puzzle of the Week, by James Andrewes
An isogram is a word that contains no repeated letters, eg. 'amulet', 'unleash', 'flamingo', 'nightmare' or 'trampoline'. The longer the isogram, the more impressive! In contrast, words like 'symphony' (with 2 y’s), or 'explore' (with 2 e’s), are not isograms.
Your challenge is to think of composers whose surnames are isograms. Holst, with 5 letters, and Delius, with 6 letters, are relatively short examples. Can you think of composers whose surnames are 7, 8, and 9 letters long, and contain no repeated letters? Can you go as high as 10 or 11 letters?
While you're thinking, have a listen to Exploring Music's program on Delius and Holst on the website:
