Removed Michael Mazin[edit]

I removed Michael Mazin, who was at the very bottom of the list (allegedly born 1989). I think we need more substantial proof of notability for such names (or, I'm simply living in a box). Also, there are plenty of amateur composers born of X-descent. What makes the cut for being on this list? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chewieblue (talkcontribs) 02:35, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Didn't see Aram Ilyich Khachaturian[edit]

born in Tiflis, Imperial Russia (now Tbilisi, Georgia) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.235.30.51 (talk) 03:41, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

History/Ethnicity/Occupation[edit]

Given my edit summary and the fact that this elaboration was unnecessary, I have removed it. If you have any comments or arguments to make regarding this, please respond here. Classicalfan2 (talk) 02:51, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Order[edit]

Shouldn't there be one? Like alphabetical, chronological, importance, no. of spouses, anything, but this is a mess. Anapazapa (talk) 00:22, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

There is an order - alphabetical by surname. I've just placed your addition accordingly. :-) Alfietucker (talk) 14:39, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Structure of page[edit]

To me it seems inappropriate to have "the five" as the first section as if they were indisputably on a different level of importance to the others. Surely to most people, one or more of Prokoviev, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovic would be included in the most important Russian composers. The simplest solution is to lead with the main list and add sections as wished, or else to have a less restricted first section (which is appropriate to a more specialised page).
