You could always use the search facility on MusicWeb to find out. I think what you call 'this kind of thing' is an important feature of a review. Way back in the mists of time when virtually all I knew was the Planets and a few opera arias I came across Gramophone and started to read it regularly. It was full of references to composers I had never heard of but that stimulated me to use the local record library to find out more.
Do not blame Rob Barnett because he mentions a composer you have never heard of - that is not his problem. It is so easy today to hear virtually anything via the internet that there really is no excuse.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
