There is a man who, every time he sees me, excitedly starts asking me questions about someone I know almost nothing about. Why?

If moose sick be the feud of love ...

I suppose I have to ask: is the title relevant?
Is this a true story? Or from your imagination?
Does he mistake you for someone else?
Man = he?

Is the "someone" famous?
Is the man a quizmaster of some sort?

This sounds like a little lady in a shop in the US in 1994 who kept asking me about Prince Charles and Diana as if I was an expert on their goings on, just because she heard my British accent.

Anything similar to this?

Is he aware that you don't know much about the person he asks about? Is he senile? Does he expect an answer from you?

Is there anything relevant about this man? If so;
age?
background?
job?
education?
sivil status?
where he lives?
hobbies?

Would it be helpful for us to try to determine who the person he asks questions about is?

So we're looking for a male musician from Western Europe who spent his later years in America? Schoenberg? Varese?

And this is your name as well? (I promise I won't peek.) Is there any other reason your questioner gets excited, apart from the similarity of name? (For instance, I have the same surname as a nineteenth-century playwright but nobody keeps asking me about him: there must be some other reason?)

There's really not much else to find out, really, except why this man keeps asking me about Fritz Kreisler even after I let him know that I know next to nothing about him.

Aha! OK, Ms Kreisler: does this guy believe that you are related to Fritz? Is he deluded in some way? Does he suffer from memory loss? Is he himself a violinist? Is he trying to flirt with you? Does he suffer from memory loss? :-)

Hmm, this is intriguing. He's not deluded, not senile, does not suffer from memory loss. Correct? Yet he keeps asking you about Mr Kreisler, even though you have told him that you're not related to the composer? Does he have a reason to ask? Does he not believe you when you say you're not related?

The more we find out, the less we know.

So he is an academic who specialises in Kreisler?
Has he published on Kreisler? Is this relevant?

Do we need to find out specifically what questions he asks you? Are the questions welcome or do you rather wish he would leave you alone?

Is he just being friendly? Does he want to borrow some family heirloom or such? Does anyone in your family own a Kreisler violin? Does he want to access recordings? Sketches? Other documents?

Does he want to teach you or enrol you on to his course? Is he involved in university recruitment?

Running out of ideas regarding what he's asking about, so I better try from a different angle

He obviously doesn't ask expecting you to give him an answer. But he does have a reason to ask? Or is it just a passing comment?

Do you have an intention of finding it out for him - eventually? If not, is there a reason why you don't tell him, you're not going to?

If you find out, or tell him that you have no intention of doing so, will he then no longer have a reason to talk to you? or stay in touch with you? If so, would you then lose out somehow?

Could you find out, if you wanted to? Would it be easy for you to find out?
Is it something that only a relative (such as you) would know?
Is there a reason why he can't just find out? Because he isn't a relative?
Does he need the information or is he just interested to know it?
Would he be angry if you told him you weren't going to find out?

Are there other people who would know this? If so, are they only descendants of the composer?

Would you/he have to go back to the composer's birthplace to find out?

Just for clarification/personal recap. This man asks you something about the composer Kreisler, of whom you are a descendant. His job is as a teacher of music, and he specializes in this composer. Yet there is a reason why he cannot find out about the thing he's asking you himself, but this reason is not a disability, old age or reduced mobility. You on the other hand do not want to find out as it's too much work, but you do not want to tell him either for some (yet to be determined) reason.

What puzzles me is that even though he is the expert and should have the contacts, resources,etc to do it, he thinks (knows?) that you will be able to find information he cannot find?

Is it relevant whether you like or dislike Kreisler's music? Would the puzzle apply only to his compositions, or to his recordings and arrangements as well? Is he interested in your musical talents? Does he wish to find out whether you have inherited any particular musical talent from Kreisler? Are you a musician, and is this relevant? Is he interested to find out whether musical taste is genetically determined? Does he ask you to arrange a work to see whether your style would be anything like Fritz's? Or are you actually indifferent to late Romantic violin
music? And if so, does he want to convert you?

Are you worried that if you told him you weren't going to find out, he would be annoyed? Would think less of you? Stop liking you? Is he a friend? Does he do something for you that he would stop doing if you admitted you weren't going to find out?
To find out what he asks you, would you have to listen to some of Kreisler's music?

Do you tell him you haven't had time to do it? Does he want your opinion on Kreiser's work in general? or just certain aspects of it?

The questions he's asking are much more general than this, and you're really very, very close!! I feel like at this point the solution is almost a let down!

Do you not tell him because you are embarrassed that you don't know? or don't want to find out? or you don't want to let him down?

this is the simplest reason I could think of, lol

I don't know much about the composer but let me try.

Does he ask about Kreisler as a violinst? composer? is it specific part of his work he's asking for, like a spesific era? or type of music?

Does he ask about the physical side of the composing? like the paper or ink he used?

You said it was simple, so it seem then that it's not something like 'what do you think of Kreisler's use of x, y, z in his compositions from the 1920'. Correct?

Just to verify, you HAVE to listen to Kreisler's compositions to be able to answer his question? Could you have answered if you heard it some time ago (before you was asked this question)? Or would you have to listen out for something specific, something that you might not be aware of if you just listen to the compositions just as musical pieces?

So he asks you for your opinion on something related to Kreisler's work as a composer.

Is it about;
some of his works? all works? if some, would it be helpful to determine which ones?
some technicality in his works?
some effect, emotional maybe, that it may have on you?
whether or not you would like to use Kreisler's music for a special event?

So a quick recap:

You are a descendant of Fritz Kreisler. This music lecturer, a lover of Kreisler's music, asks you something about your opinion of Kreisler. You say you will listen to the relevant piece(s) and report back to him. You don't, because you haven't got round to it and feel quite indifferent about Kreisler's music anyway. But you tell him you will, so as not to offend him. Is this all correct?

So all we need to find out is what aspect/quality of Kreisler's music you are promising him to listen to/for? Is this right? Will finding out the information actually enhance his listening pleasure? Will it enhance his knowledge of Kreisler? Or will it just give him pleasure to know that you share his love of Kreisler?

Does he ask 2 questions? Or is the second part of what he asks integrated in that 'do you like' part?

Just to clarify; He asks how you react to the music? or something related to you as a Kreisler descendant?

Yesish to react....

Does he ask about your feelings? or does he ask you to evaluate Kreisler's music?

Would any of these be close to what he asks;
Is it not heavenly/out of this world?
Don't you want to engulf yourself in his music?
Does he not make the sweetest music?
Don't you want to dance all night to his music?

Does he ask what your favourite thing about it is? How it compares to someone else's music?

Whew! Finally time for....

**************SPOILER********************

I work at a restaurant across the street from the school of music at the University of Georgia. One of my regular customers is a music professor, and one day when he saw my name tag he said "you know, in my field, you have a very famous name..." and I told him that Fritz Kreisler was something to the effect of my great grandfathers 1st cousin, but I wasn't sure. He proceeded to ask me whether I liked his music, and when I told him I really didn't know, he couldn't believe it! He told me how wonderful it was and that I really should give it a listen, that I would love it, that I, being his family, might even have a special affinity for it. I told him that "yeah, maybe you're right, I may have to listen to some of it." Since then, every time he comes in, he floods me with a series of questions with hardly a break for me to answer..."Have you listened to any Kreisler yet? Isn't it fantastic? What's your favorite piece? Have you found any recordings in your families records? Have you found out the exact relationship between you and him?...." All I can ever say is, no I haven't listened to any of it yet. I don't have the heart to tell him that I never intend to go out of my way to listen to the music, because the idea of a member of a Kreisler family not caring about good ol Fritz that much would really let him down...and I'm all about making the customer happy!"

Thanks everyone for sticking with it for so long, I know this one was driving Eli and Woodworm nuts. Thanks to Enjay for giving it that last minute push!

Ah, at last! Phew indeed. I'm not a fan of Fritz's compositions but his playing was absolutely unique.

Next time he asks, perhaps tell him your favourite piece is Kreisler's version of "Danny Boy". It must be the kitschest and schmaltziest piece in the whole world. He plays it in three octaves. That might get the Prof off your case for a bit.

Actually, I started this puzzle 2 months ago, and within the last couple of weeks he's kind of given up.
