Ahmed Adnan Saygun

This Turkish composer gets at least four different variations at Last.fm; an astonishing twenty two if you allow for all mentions of something approximating his name! The one shown here, however, is the only correct spelling, as per his rather short entry in New Groves (to be fair, he was still alive when my edition of New Groves was printed, so maybe they were keeping it brief to avoid libel lawsuits!)

He was born in 1907 and died in 1991 and is often thought of in relation to Turkey as Sibelius is to Finland.
