This time not a score.
What 19th century pianist and composer wrote teaching pieces under the pseudonym of his last name spelled backwards?

That was fast Scott. You must be (or have been, like me) a piano teacher. I would never have know otherwise.

I do teach piano, but I remember that name from my early piano lessons. My teacher used the Schaum method and a piece by Gobbaerts / Streabbog was in one of the books with the story about his name. With such valuable musical information as that it is no wonder that I wanted to pursue music. ;-).

I had to play Streabbog pieces as a kid, and always wondered about the funny name. Never bothered to check it though.

The thing is, his name is rather funny forwards.

It may be to English speakers. In Flemish Belgium, I think it's not at all unusual. I've seen funnier ones :)
