Second is George Antheil.

That's right. I'm surprised no one guessed it earlier.

It's not. I'm not really sure if this is fair, because I doubt I would be able to guess him either.

Hint: He's still alive.

Hint: He was born in the US.

One more hint, please!

The background is probably a very big hint.

No guesses for the first and last? Here are some more hints.

No. 1 was a teacher in the US.

No. 1 is famous mostly for his ballets.

No. 2 was one of the leading figures in Post-War American music.

My first reaction to the first one was Milhaud. Is that right?

Of course! I knew I recognised him.

I'm very proud of myself...  0:)

P.S. A friend of mine is a (Dutch) music theorist, and a book of his about pitch-class theory will be published this spring by the Rochester University Press. Milton Babbitt figures prominently in it, but I had never seen his picture...
