I agree, Azz, except for the typo you made in (h): He must be a genius to have written...
(a) and (b) obviously refer to a musician who is now dead, or no longer composes music. (g) and (h) refer to a living and currently active musician.
The question is, why do we need a perfect infinitive for the action of writing a brilliant piece of music? I think this is because judging or evaluating the musician took (or takes) place after his writing the piece of music in question.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Gustavo, Contributor,
