Tentative suggestions:

7. Gliere
8. Beethoven
9. Auber

That leaves no. 4!

Well, almost all correct - Auber isn't quite right - different first syllable sound required.
(Think ecstasy, think illicit drugs in tablet form.) For No.4 think Elizabethan.

Anyway, all done and dusted. Thanks to all who partook.
I'm now a spent force as far as this type of puzzle is
concerned. Next something different.....
