    Geographic composer abc game

    Ok, following Krummhorn`s fine idea, the game here is alphabetical by country, and then the composer surnames A-Z once.

    Although I find America should really be under U, for United States of America, we`ll start with it because I can at least think of an American composer whose name starts with A!

    Leroy Anderson-

    Here are a few of my favourite compositions by him- Sleigh Ride, Blue Tango, The Syncopated Clock, The Typewriter.

    Next post should be an American composer, last name starting with B.

    Does the next one (starting with "D") have to be American, or just from a country starting with "A"?

    Anyway, here's one of each: David Leo Diamond (from America) and Johann Nepomuk David (from Austria).

    That's all right with me, Gio. But then, if I start the "B" series with a composer from, say, Burma, then all 25 subsequent composers have to be from Burma, too - right?

    Stephen Foster.

    Thanks for leaving me the easy one, guys.

    George Gershwin

    Favourites by him- Rhapsody in Blue, Piano Concerto....

    As to selecting Burma as the next country, please don`t! (nothing personal, Burma- just don`t know your composers )

    Gershon Kingsley (of "Popcorn" fame - I don't know why, but that piece hypnotized me when I was a kid).

    Ellen Jane Lorenz -

    Could this be the first woman composer to make the list? The gals here should like that
    There is a publishing company with the same last name here in the US. Not sure if this name is known by my colleagues in Canada or across the pond.

    Hi gio,

    Are you sure Michael isn`t his first name?

    I'll offer Edgar Meyer (born 1960).
