A suggested batting order:
1. Shostakovich: unconventional but effective and stays in for a long innings
2. Beethoven: hard hitting play maker who can make a score
3. Mozart: perfect technique, exquisite shot playing every time
4. J.S. Bach: the heart and captain of the side. Everyone learns from him
5. Debussy: can do everything with the bat(on)
6. Rachmaninoff: a sublime all rounder
7. Schumann: Because someone has to be wicket keeper
8. Ravel: he dances down the pitch, whether batting or bowling
9. Chopin: the perfect leg spinner who turns the ball with uncanny precision
10. Puccini: the art of fast bowling who mesmerises all who watch
11. Tchaikovsky: power, strength and volume
One thought on “If Classical Composers were a Cricket Team…”
… and possibly F. Mendelssohn as 12th man? He’s very good, but just misses making the big league.
