Mr Stephen Sondheim submits two anagrams

I’ve had an email from Mr Sondheim, submitting two self-anagrams. The first, which he credits to Jonathan Tunick, is

Sondheim = He opens the mind.

The other, anonymous, is:

Sondheim = He pens demon hits.

 

Hmmmm. Other notable contributions to best composer anagrams, ever.

From Jeremy Sams:

Elgar is of course regal and often large. Haydn , being efficient is handy… But Mozart being all embracing is Mr a to z.

 

And from Lowell Liebermann:

Camille Saint Saens = A Satanic Illness Me

 

Keep them coming. Andrew Lloyd Webber looks ripe for the ana-plucking.

 

Wally d’ wonder rebbe?

    There are numerous anagram generators on the internet. I entered ‘Frederick Delius’ and the result was “Clef Dr. I reside UK”. I suppose any composer can be a clef dr; Delius may have been born in the UK and buried there, but in-between he preferred the USA.
    NL adds: Very true. And he resided mostly in France. Don’t think he was a Dr, either.
