For me V is a definite runner up to B - not only Van Eyk, but Vivaldi too. You could also argue for Chedeville's stuff that he published under the name of Vivaldi, for another sneaky loophole wink.png

Can you count Vaughan Williams among the Vs?

Don't see why not, no rules have been set and loopholes have been applauded.  It's like some bookshops put 'du Maurier' under D, others M.  I wouldn't say either is right or wrong, though I'd hope 'de la Mare' was filed using the same logic.  But even then, that's just my rule...so that could probably be discarded if it needed to be, to maximise music availability :rofl:

Can you use your own name and arrange/edit everything you like?

Vaughan Williams never gets shorn of his Vaughan, and is in any case quite good enough for at least two letters, so he's in. Chedeville is also in, because I think Vivaldi was at his best when he was Chedeville.

Zwhe, I shall, with appropriately dignified indifference, pretend I didn't see your suggestion! However, you should get composing; the Z's have a lot of catching-up to do.

Maizie, I love Dianna Wynne-Jones' books, but never know where to find her in libraries.

I'm another B - Bach, Beethoven, Brahms will usually keep me very happy; probably both on piano and violin.  Actually my son's another B so I wouldn't miss out on playing his compositions either ... (he's 12, writing a fair bit and wants to do more).  He could argue for his piano exam if you allowed deBussy ...  Apart from that he would happily play Bach all day - interspersed with Bernstein-inspired improv since he helped out with a Westside story production a couple of months back!

But sadly no Baines. Too minor?

B perhaps for Bach, Brahms, Busoni, and Beethoven

Or perhaps S for Schubert, Schumann and Shostakovitch
