This is the look that Beethoven gave when he realised that it did in fact come with a bow!

Hahaha. 

 

By the way I agree with the Chopin "attribution" haha

I think Mendelssohn. The features are too delicate for Liszt. Look at that jaw! Mendelssohn Never had such a Look.

I respectfully disagree.  The hair is much more Liszt.

Here's their actual Beethoven.   https://www.ebay.com/itm/265124212325

I think our guy here is Berlioz.  I respectfully disagree with VdA's respectful disagreement--that hair is too fluffy and flowing for Liszt.   Maybe Mendelssohn, but we lack the necessary mutton chops for Felix's look.  Could be Chopin.  For your perusal, here's a somewhat-older Hector Berlioz--definitely the right hair.

I wonder if anyone looked on the bottom?

Meanwhile, I respectfully disagree with all the respectful disagreement. The nose is too straight for Chopin, and he’s too debonair and slight for Liszt. Also, Liszt always had a kind of angry look, intended to appear studious, possibly, but failing.

Berlioz was famous for his wild-and red- hair so I doubt that. And he doesn’t have glasses so Schubert’s out.

Gotta be Mendelssohn.

He's another plausible candidate, but Berlioz, while a thoroughly competent composer, is a looong ways from being Beethoven.  :)

Is Justin the new Frank? 

It's all PR packaging to sell tickets and other merchandise.  Does it really matter?  :lol:
