    I like that - sadly it seems that poor old Wagner must have failed to receive his invitation!

    I think its supposed to be composers who contributed to piano/keyboard literature. You have Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Schubert, and (I think) Franz Joseph Haydn, and Chopin and Brahms and Mendelssohn. I wasn't sure who the pianist was supposed to be, my guess is Horowitz.

    Chopin? Hmm, he looks more like Schumann to me. The pianist could be Stravinsky or Prokofiev... or the Dalai Lama? :P

    I agree that it's Schumann - another habitual sufferer of post-wig whipped hair syndrome. If the pianist is Prokofiev then that's the only time I've seen a picture/photo/cartoon where he seems to be a bit of a party guy, and I can't imagine Stravinsky allowing anyone THAT close to his piano. . I'm guessing the pianist is likely to be Austrian or German seeing all the composers are?

    The (kind of) abstraction is wonderful.

    I'm pretty sure that's old Rudolf Serkin
