A few hints:

Nationalities: 6 German, 3 Russian, 1 Italian, 1 Norwegian, 1 Spainish, 1 American, 1 French, 1 Finnish

Period: 3 Baroque, 2 Classical, 5 Romantic, 5 Modern (there might be some debate among 2 composers as to whether they are Romantic because their style is rooted in 19th century or Modern because they composed well into the 20th century)
