2 Henri Cramer's?

There are two listings of Henri Cramer when browsing by composer? Are they the same? Should they be the same? I only looked at two compositions (due to lack of time), and there were some similar compositional techniques, so they could be for the from the same composer.,_Henri and,_Henri_%28fl._1890%29

It appears that we are unsure of birth/death dates and info about the 2nd Cramer - could they be the same?

I suspect (but can't prove) that "Henri Cramer" was a pseudonym under which works were published when the true author didn't wish to be identified. For example, one of Tchaikovsky's piano works was published under the name "H. Cramer" by Jurgenson (Moscow) in the 1860s. Although the name crops up all over the place, biographical details for Cramer seem surprisingly tricky to pin down, which adds some weight to the theory that he never actually existed  :-) — P.davydov 17:57, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
