Here's the biggest hunk of all - Danish composer Rued Langgaard.

Somehow the nose isn't quite reaching "distinguished" in Langgaard's case, but it is certainly reaching.

Hands down, Jani Christou (1926-1970). He's as pretty as the singer from A-ha! ;)

That's most likely just a good picture taken when she was a bit younger. She's more average-looking in her other pics.

Not a clue which one you mean. I bought a disc of his music and there were several photos. One way or another, seems he is pretty popular.
