...And Aaron Copland's wife...and Henry Cowell's wife...John Harbison's wife...Charles Wourinen's wife...Ravel's wife...Debussy's wife...never mind.:lol:
Two of these don't fit with the others....

And for your information Wuorinen is in fact married...just not to a woman!

Look, I haven't wanted to confess this, but I can see you are on to me.
I actually wrote most of Bach's music, and all of Beethoven. That tired me out for a while, but Mahler is really me. And Stravinsky.
And by the way, I have a nice bridge I'd like to sell you.

I'm going to give you a blank check and tell you to write the greatest piece of music ever, with no deadline. There's no way I could possibly end up the worse in this bargain.
