Or Berger Engel-Willy? Now, he penned some lovely scribbles, including the Crumple-Horn Sonata, Op.12ty.

 Smiley
Cheesy

Not wholly relevant but that reminds me of my late piano teacher Ronald Meachen who, at a cocktail party, was approached by a very pompous man who announced "Good evening. I am the Recorder of Norwich," to which Ron's immediate riposte was "Hello. I am the crumhorn of Wigan."

He must have strayed from a local production of Gloriana with his wicker flaskets, or knicker caskets (or whatever they were)...

Not whilst there are still threads to derail with reckless abandon...



...no, there's only room on the track for one train at a time.

"After you, Claude."
"No. After you, Cecil!"

Now I know you aren't old enough to remember that.

I'd be happy to wake up every morning if my clock-radio belted out the opening fanfare from Eric Coates's Calling All Workers (and then the rest of it). He was a true master whose music made the world a better and happier place. Ironic, really, when you look at a photograph of him; as I've noted here before, "he resembles nothing so much as an acidulous bank-manager":

It does, but nothing could be further from the truth, apparently. He was a lovely, warm-hearted man who liked nothing better than going to the Savoy Grill for supper with his wife, Phyllis, and then dancing the night away to one of the bands; or going to the Kit-Kat Club and dancing to the strains of Jack Hylton and his orchestra.
