Boris Alexandrovich Chaykovsky

A lot of CD covers and Wikipedia call him 'Tchaikovsky', but that obviously invites confusion with Peter Ilich. The New Grove has an entry under Tchaikovsky reading 'See Chaykovsky' -and Boris' full entry is listed under that surname's spelling. Other online sources use that spelling too, so it's not perverse. As for the patronymic: New Grove uses it, without brackets, indicating that it should be used generally. gets it all sorts of wrong, on all counts: they have his three-name entry only using Cyrillic script; they also have a 2-name entry using the 'C' spelling of his surname, but almost no-one is using it. They also have five English-spelled variants of his name, which are also not in widespread use. Let us just say: they are confused about him!
