Sorry for this sidetrack, but when we went to Prague I noticed that the billings posted outside the concert halls for classical recitals always provided the full initials of the composers' names. I suppose J.S. Bach isn't too eyebrow-raising, but we also got L.V. Beethoven, A. Dvorak, W. A. Mozart, P.I. Tchaikovsky, J. Brahms, B. Smetana and so on. Maybe there are just no rules!
