For anyone who wants me to create a holiday avatar of their favorite composer, then please don’t hesitate to ask. It seems our Sarge has hopped onto his sleigh and has gone sliding down the slopes.

This is the earlier version, I assume.

There also seems to be a OOP recording with Alagna.
And this is right up your alley.

Yes, that’s the one - reissued in various guises.

Could I request a non-composer one?  :D This beautiful painting by da Messina could use some holiday spirit, that I'd like to change my avatar to

Here you go. I had to do some cropping as I couldn’t upload it (for some reason), but this should work:

Thanks, Andre. I wish I could get my dad to join GMG, but he said he doesn’t like forums and, more importantly, people. :P

Last chance for avatars with Santa Claus hats. Anyone interested?

Indeed, might have to put a Santa hat on Mussorgsky.

I know it’s not New Year’s, but this avatar will be appropriate once Santa Claude passes:
