Sacre Bleu!

by George Barany and Friends

This puzzle was posted on an important centennial in the history of music.

Click here to view or download the "main" puzzle, which we consider to be of "mid-week level" difficulty, in PDF format; here to download it as a puz file [requires Across Lite software to play]; here to solve the puzzle interactively (thanks to Jim Horne); here for the solution. Click here for an alternate version of the puzzle that squeezes in a bit more music-centered fill and clues; here for interactive play; and here for the solution (somewhat different from the main puzzle). I thank Noam Elkies, Lloyd Fricker, Michael Hanko, Martin Herbach, Nancy Herther, and Arlene Romoff for working with me on this project on rather short notice, and for their numerous insights that were integrated into the final versions.
