Maxim Sozontovich Berezovsky

Born in the Ukraine (around 1745), died in St. Petersburg in 1777: both the Russians and the Ukrainians can claim him as their own (and hence the claims seen on some CDs that he wrote ‘the first Russian Symphony’).

His name is listed in full in the New Grove, complete with patronymic: no part of it is marked as optional. Last.fm surpass themselves with eleven possible matches against his name, one of which is actually correct! The one used by most listeners there, however, is spelled in Cyrillic, so it’s completely not the right one for native English speakers to be using!
