Styles change; but Bizet needs a makeover and Rachmaninov looks like a vampire.

Ha ha, great. To me, Bizet looks very intellectual, while Rachmaninoff has a rather noble appearance; Bartok's gaze is mesmerizing, Enescu is impenetrable as a sphynx and the young Tchaikovsky is perfect for a Turgenieff's main character.

Massenet was cute.



Prokofiev was handsome too. So slavic!

This dapper young fellow isn't even on the list:


and as long as we're allowing minor figures to qualify as long as they're attractive young females...
anyone remember Charo (not that there's anything minor about her figure):

Might that not be because by the end of his life he was the worst looking composer?

Ivor Novello was often considered one of the handsomest...
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

Wow...I had no idea that the character in Atman's Gosford Park was an historical figure.  I just looked him up and learned also that much of the music in the film was composed by him.  The day is young and I've learned something already!

Warlock, Canteloube, Parry, Scriabin.

Edit: seeing them all together, it seems I have a "type".

Not a composer yet seems to be your "type" nevertheless...  ;D :P

Yes - the songs that Jeremy Northam (Spelling?) sings are Novello songs. It is quite cleverly weaved into the movie.

Indeedie, his image is quite solid - I love how the bike riding thing seems so charming, ditto his well-kept home.
