My only thought is: who are these people?

Honestly, I tried. I googled James Eckardt and came up with a whole lot of hits for a book reviewer in Thailand. At that point I gave up.

Your boycotting of living composers would horrify some guy.  ;D

It would have helped if I was given the correct name to actually search for.

There you have it folks: composers so well known that the person who initially named them couldn't quite remember the name.

I don't boycott them. I'm quite sure I own a considerable number of works by living composers. Including (but not confined to) all the pop/rock/alternative musicians that lots of folks around here would be horrified that I don't boycott.

While l don't exactly boycott most living composers, enough of them bore the crap out of me consistently enough that l do not seek them out.
