Yes indeed. (Rimsky-Korsakov (rim ski - coarse a cough), although given
the letter combination 6-8, that in itself is a fairly hefty clue.)

No.5 and No.9 remain. Think 20th. century, think German and American.

The next set are waiting in the wings!

No.5 could be Kurt Rasch as any kind if rash would be most unpleasant...as we will be if it is a very obscure answer Tim!!!!

Thanks Brian for the suggestion, although you'll tend to find that all
the composers selected for quiz questions are ones everyone has
heard of, even if they find certain composers' music rather vile.

Rob, if you had read Tim's mail you would have seen that the composer is German and even you know that Liszt was not German, he hated the language, so a very long tongue sticking out in your direction :D
Tim please put us both out of our misery, we are the brothers "Grimm" at the moment, also an unpleasant name.

Actually, I've already given the answer, in a sense. (Weill -
the use of the word 'vile' in my last message was no accident,
and Brian was half right with Kurt Rasch (first name was correct).)

Anyway here's the next lot:-

1. display item of cookware (6)
2. anger territory (7)
3. wooden peg area (7)
4. trade wallet for money (7)
6. old female relative one very old operating system (8)
7. schadenfreude melody (6)
8. tempt with food irish relative of set-theorist famous for his diagram (9)
9. ecstasy panda (5)
10. honey-makers what (5)

Some of these are a bit more tricky!
