Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Yes, I did say five.
You do not have to say why.
Just put them in order from favorite to fifth favorite.

1. Beethoven
2. Tchaikovsky
3. Frank *EDIT* Franck (sorry, I never spell his name correctly)
4. Liszt
5. Schubert

If your opinions differ (by that I mean if you hate a composer that someone else loves), please be civil in your arguments. That is more of a reminder for me than a request for you :)

 

Since I can still edit my list (hehehehe) I have a new one

1. Beethoven

2. Tchaikovsky

3. Strauss, R.

4. Shostakovitch

5. Barber for his Adagio (I've only heard that one piece by him)/ Mozart (For Sym. 40, Eine Kleine, violin+viola duets, Mass, and Requiem)

HM Liszt

Five is really hard ...

 

Anyway:

 

JS Bach

Mahler

Bartók

Schönberg

Messiaen

The number 1 choice never changes, but the others are rather fluid:

1.  Beethoven

2.  Chopin

3.  Bruch

4.  Franck (especially the Last Seven Words)

5.  Gorecki (if only for his 3rd Symphony, which is brilliant)

1.Bach
2.Beethoven
3.Brahms
4.Lassus
5.Zwetkoff (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Zwetkoff)

and many five other composers like Hadyn, Reger, Debussy, Ravel, Britten, Pärt, Messiaen....

1. John Cage

2. Erik Satie

3. Ferenc Liszt

4. Ludwig van Beethoven

5. Georg Friedrich Händel

(Kár, hogy nem 10 komponistát lehet megjelölni, mert ez esetben megemlítenék neveket: Messiaen, Schönberg, Purcell, Lassus és Hildegard von Bingen)

 

Does it have to be classical composers?

 

1. Mozart

2. Prokofiev

3. John Williams

4. James Newton Howard

5. Debussy

 

1. Ravel - and not for the Bolero! Daphnis et Chloé, Piano Concerto, Rapsodie Espagnole and so on.

2. Poulenc - His works for voice and piano and his use of chords are magnificent.

3. Stravinsky - Scherzo à la Russe, Russian Dance

4. Prokofiev - Piano Concerto's, Luitenant Kijé

5. Rachmaninoff - Piano Concertos, Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

 

Many others of course, including Liszt, Infante, Walton, Suk (Fantastic Scherzo)

And Jaques Brel!

Anyone got a postal address for sending the fan mail to the dead composers?
Anything from before the 20th century, I guess?

In classical sense "classical" is everything/one what it important longer than his own life, but what do you think realy, in my opinion Messiaen is "classical" Duke Ellington too

In technical terms Classical is about 1750-1830

Baroque overlaps for the first ten years, and Romantic for the last 15.

Romantic ends roughly around when WWI begins, Contemporary begins in the 1970s :)
