Really, sometimes I don't know what kind of abysmal humour to reckon with on
this list.
Anyhow, the crucial thing is, Beethoven never filled any CD. If he did that
today, it would render him a great composer.
By your peculiar standards, however, Teleman has outcomposed 3 Bachs by
something like 250 CDs (=5500 singles, 411 reel to reel tapes at 19.5"/sec.
or 57 large clay tablets with cuneiform notation). While (J.S.) Bach did not
write for clarinet, Teleman would probably be held in much higher esteem if
he had composed nothing BUT his Methodical Sonata for tenor chalumeau.


(BTW: Mike, does your first sentence imply you witnessed B.'s resurrection
