    I can understand why Arnold Dorsey might want to change his name. I don’t understand why he would change it to Engelbert Humperdinck.

    And they probably never had bubble gum cards either.

    If they came out with a Great Composer series of bubble gum cards, I’d buy them.

    She forgets Bruckner and Wagner!

    Indeed. There are just too many great composers, I guess.

    What about Charles Edward Ives? And George Crumb, Conlon Nancarrow, Harry Partch, John Cage, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein, Morton Feldman and Philip Glass? And George Gershwin, of course. Don’t forget great american composers :)

    Not to mention Manuel de Falla, Tomás Luis de Vitoria, Rodrigo, Turina, Albeniz, Granados and Company!

    Because his agent made him. The agent also worked with Gilbert Sullivan and a few others, and thought it would be “amusing” for pop artists to use the names of classical composers (yes, there is another Humperdinck.) Gilbert and Sullivan wrote operettas such as the Mikado.

    Yes, I knew there was a German composer named Engelbert Humperdinck who lived and died before the singer was born. I also know Gilbert and Sullivan from Gilbert O’Sullivan. We did The Mikado in high school. The local opera company did Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel a few years ago. I’m not the clod hopper you may believe me to be.

    I don’t understand either. Especially, when there’s already a famous composer by that name.

    Stravinsky!

    I notice that after Chopin, Bach and Mozart, all the names are in alphabetical order. She probably only knew those three names, and the rest is just a list she has memorised. I wonder how long that took her.

    I can see Schroeder playing the “Hebrides Overture”.

    Oh, excuse me, I misread your original post. I thought it said you didn’t understand why Mr Dorsey changed his name to E. Humperdinck. That was what I was adressing—the fact that his particular professional name was not his choice but his agent’s, who imposed names on several artists. I thought you were asking for information. My mistake.
