David Friedman (1950), Donald Martino (1931), Friedrich Gulda (1930), Greg Danner (1958), Guilherme Schroeter (1960), Hanuš Trneček (1858), Horst Ebenhöh (1930), Julia Adolphe (1988), Olav Anton Thommessen (1946), Olli Kortekangas (1955), Pascual Marquina Narro (1873), Paul de Wailly (1854), Paul Pisk (1893), Poldowski (1879), Richard Tauber (1891), Sylvester Levay (1945)

Well, no big composing names today so it's a bit of a more modest affair. But hey, there's still plenty of fun to be had though...
