Oh...now it all fits in...finally!

La gazza ladra ===> Giuseppe Gazzaniga. Never heard a note by him, but remeber seeing (and being intrigued by) recordings of his Don Giovanni many years ago (when there used to be CD shops that stocked everything  :( ).

BTW, I do know (and enjoy very much) all of La gazza ladra (beautifully recorded by Katia Ricciarelli and Samuel Ramey, live from Pesaro under Gianluigi Gelmetti). Rossini at the top of his game (with a number that must have been inspired by "Mir ist so wunderbar" from Fidelio ). And , of course, the overture means a lot to many film fans...  :)

Well, Andrei usurped by "zz" trademark, but I pardon him (and AFAIK, Gazzaniga was not a "conductor-composer").

I'll think about something to post in the next hour... ;)

I'm surprised... at first sight I thought he's Russian.

Okay, some poetic hint then? (these are my favorites, honestly).  :)

This man wrote a very interesting opera, pioneering one could say (due to the subject matter)...

Besides opera, did he write anything else interesting?

Well seen, Karlo! And, you know, the soundtrack to that is this:

Well there's the Sonny Rollins album The Bridge, named thus for his practicing on the Brooklyn Bridge. But yeah, it's probably not knotty enough.

Well done! I knew he looked familiar. I like his Symphony 1 in particular. But don't know the space opera  although I  have a suite from it. An interesting choice.

I thought of posting Julie D´Aubigny / Mademoiselle Maupin, whose adventurous existence was larger than life and worth knowing about, but I won´t, since she was only an opera singer and didn´t compose anything.

In stead, it will be this experimental composer:

Indeed. Well done!  :) And the Albert Camus hint was a reference to Blomdahl's ballet Sisyphos (which, by chance, as a very young man I saw a rehearsal of in Lucerne in 1975 under IIRC Antal Dorati).
