Mike: And it is nonsense. Vivaldi, Verdi ... Paderewsky [! -I mean, the Minuet in G is okay but he's hardly a composer at all.] not Rosetti [Who? You mean the poet/painter?] etc.

Mike, you knee-jerked. The guy was fiddling with his theory about the "greatest" composers. Hence Elgar, Smetana, et al., weren't considered. If you had read more of the article, though, I think you would have found less with which to disagree.
