Horszowski? I don't know if he composed, but he's the only musician I know of who lived to be 100!

Who do you think it is? He's definately a composer! (a good one, too)

They were all born in the same year:

Bach: 1685-1750
Scarlatti: 1685-1757
Handel: 1685-1759

... but they did not die together. wink


I like coincidences like that (three composers born in 1685, two composers born in 1810, two composers died in 1990, etc). It makes the dates so much easier to remember! laugh

4- I would say Bernstein.

The bonus makes no sense. Iamcandian's is Ornstein, though there is conjecture as to his correct birth year (even he was unsure). Horzowski 'only' lived to the age of 100, almost 101.

More importantly, he recorded it shortly before dying. You could say it was his "last breath" or "final words." wink


Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.
