7. George Alexander Osborne (1806-1893)
During his lifetime, Osborne was noted more for his piano playing than for his compositions. Berlioz and Chopin attended his concert and befriended him. Osborne even advised Berlioz about writing for the piano. Although he is known to have also composed two operas and several orchestral works, these are now lost.
