Talk:Les étoiles d'or (Gobbaerts, Louis)

Composer's name wrong for this piece.

Just a note to point out that this piece appears to be by L. Streabbog, not by Jean-Louis Gobbaerts. This is shown on the title page of the score, as well as at the top of the first page of music. Streabbog doesn't have a page on this site. I don't know how to create a page and move the piece there, and I'm not sure if I have the authority to do that anyway.

Streabbog is a pseudonym, which you can see by looking at the alternate names listed on the composer's category page. Carolus 06:55, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Oh - I see. I didn't know that, and didn't notice the alternate names; but I've just come across another web page which says that "Louis Streabbog was actually called Jean Louis Gobbaerts" (

So does this site have a policy regarding composers who are better known under a pseudonym than their real name? Are they normally listed under the pseudonym or real name?

And what about pieces written by the same composer but under different names (2 different pseudonyms, or real name and pseudonym)? Would they be listed on separate pages for the different names, or all together? (I can't think of many examples - but I recall Edward MacDowell published some piano pieces as by Edgar Thorn, for example - all listed under "MacDowell" in this case.)

Just noticed: "Streabbog" is "Gobbaerts" spelled backwards. M.J.E. 12:00, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
