  • William Godfree says:


  • William Godfree says:

    …or possibly Hindemith.

  • Simone says:

    He has John William’s eyes.

  • Pianofortissimo says:

    ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’? Surely a composer who owns an Audi.

  • Simon Behrman says:


  • JOnatan Horvat says:

    Derek “Delboy” Trotter?

  • Calvin says:

    The answer is Hindemith

  • Paul Mauffray says:

    Ganz klar: Paul Hindemith!

    (William was right too! And what do we win? 😉

  • gareth says:

    Would that be the “Twelve Tone Technik”? In which case, that could be Schoenberg.

  • Ed says:

    Mexican Composer?

  • Barry Guerrero says:

    I’ll go with Hindemith as well.

  • Larry W says:

    Some answers here are hit-or-mith,
    but actually it’s Hindemith.

  • Diarmuid O Se says:

    Karajan, surely. He had once thought of becoming an engineer (good at maths) and was not above twiddling knobs in the studio. Said that CD made all else gaslight.

  • Diarmuid O Se says:

    Please delete comment. Misread as conductor.

  • David says:

    Paul Hindemith, if Google Images is to b believed.

  • Byrwec Ellison says:

    My guess was Ernst Krenek. There’s just something about that serious mien.

  • Inversio Cancrizans says:

    It IS Hindemith!
