Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Trivia Question: Which composer wrote the ‘Gasteiner’—a piano sonata inspired by a visit to Bad Gastein?

The given options are:

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Franz Schubert
  • Franz Liszt

Correct Answer: Franz Schubert

Fact: While relaxing in the spa town during the summer of 1825, the Austrian musician wrote his Piano Sonata in D major. Perhaps he should have availed himself of the restorative spas in Bad Gastein more frequently, because the prolific composer died just three years later. He was only 31 years old, but his music lives on.
