    Here's another quickie to keep you occupied whilst you struggle with my last one (unless your name's Peter Bale or Ron Rees Davies! :))

    Listed below are five composers of different eras and styles but have all written at least one concerto for a brass instrument. When you've worked out how they are, the initial letters of their first names will spell out the SURNAME ONLY of a composer also associated with brass music.

    Answers by PM only, please (but don't get Tony Blair to help you...) and if anyone spots a mistake before Ronnie the Lizard does then you'll win a whopping 80% of what I earn for compiling these quizzes! ;-) On that point, though, number 2's name can be and has been spelt a number of ways.....

    To help you along, the first three wrote concerti for brass instrument soloist and orchestra. The last two have written at least one concerto for brass instrument soloist and band. In case you're wondering, yes, just the five anagrams this time!

    In your other anagram clues you have given hints if relatives are involved, does that make this one too easy......
