Correct name?[edit]

can somebody confirm koechlin's name? some sources call him charles louis eugène, others charles-louis-eugène... --Lenthe 13:41, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Charles Louis Eugène, without the hyphens, is correct. The entry needs comprehensive upgrading. --Cenedi

however, the Πin his name was correct. the digraph is not interchangeable with oe in French (if I'm not mistaken?). the article's title should be koechlin to reflect the most common spelling in English, the first line should reflect his exact name. --Lenthe 7 July 2005 15:52 (UTC)

KOECHLIN, Charles (Louis, Eugène) should be used. The spelling used in the (large) family, even in French, does not include Œ nor œ. Please note that we pronounced it KÉKLIN with the same vowel sounds as in pépin.

Marc LERIQUE, grandson of the composer and representative of his family.

Composer project review[edit]

I've reviewed this article as part of the Composers project review of its B-class articles. This article is B-class; its biggest problem is that it needs a serious copyedit to improve its (apparently translated) English. The works list could be completed, and the article would benefit from addition sources and inline citations. My full review is on the comments page; questions and comments should be left here or on my talk page. Magic♪piano 19:14, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

I just read it, and I saw little that suggested translation from another language. Indeed, a lot of native-English Wikipedia articles suffer from over-writing and clumsy expression. (I occasionally fix these.) More attention needs to be paid to these. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 16:57, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

What is a parody?[edit]

"The twelve tone technique is one of the several modern music styles parodied in the Jungle Book symphonic poem..."

The word "parody" can mean something as simple as "reuse", as in "Handel parodied earlier works when writing Messiah". In modern usage it suggests satire or burlesque. The writer should clarify which usage is meant. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 16:57, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Lilian Harvey?[edit]

It seems bizarre to refer to Lilian Harvey (born in Hornsey, England) as a Hollywood star, when the bulk of her career took place in Germany Quevedo (talk) 16:33, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
