I've put up a poll here
with five of the composers listed above represented, including one of Davydov's suggestions. It will run for a week, and I'll probably run another one in tandem.
We really should have had a poll for the change to Satie, although I suspect it would have carried in favour of the current form. I am proposing we do not have one in the case of Gluck or Smetana, since those changes are to rectify an obvious spelling mistake (which will bring it into line with the LoC name authority in each case). I've gone ahead and done the Gluck (only 6 pages to move) and will do the Smetana when I have time.
Here are some other bugbears:Sullivan
, Arthur, rather than Sullivan
, Arthur Seymour (Sir)
Beach, Amy, rather than
Beach, Amy (Mrs. H. H. A.)
Jacquet de la Guerre, Elisabeth, rather than
La Guerre, Elisabeth Jacquet de
Lambert, Constant, rather than
Lambert, Leonard Constant
Ysaÿe, Eugène, rather than
I also noticed an incorrect firstname surname (probably "the elder" threw the submitter into confusion):
Gustaf Düben the elder should be
Düben, Gustaf (the Elder)
As for other composers we have generally removed titles such as Sir, Don, Chevalier, Ritter, etc. thus the following anomalies:
Bishop, Sir Henry Rowley
Neukomm, Sigismund (Ritter) von
Stainlein, Comte de, Louis
The composer/conductor René-Emmanuel Baton seems to have been known more popularly as Rhené-Baton, so a change to Rhené-Baton, Emmanuel seems to be one possibility; a couple of fussier and somewhat redundant alternatives would be Rhené-Baton (Baton, René-Emmanuel) or Rhéne-Baton, (René) Emmanuel.
If memory serves there haven't been any other names questioned in other threads, have there?
