Your FIVE favorite composers.

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

  • 1. Beethoven - The god of music, unrivaled in passion and emotion.

    2. Bach - The original master and creator who wrote beautiful melodies.

    3. Mozart - A natural born genius, people might dislike him for following convention or being repetitive, but he still wrote beautiful music.

    4. Haydn - Although he wrote what was popular at the time, his melodies were cheerful and charming.

    5. Tchaikovsky - The best romantic composer, who wrote sweet and emotional melodies.

  • Hi! Ansgar Kreutz, the First two names mentioned above are the "Two kings of Video Game music in Japan, or In the world?" for me...well in my opinion, and the bottom three are all Japanese Film, and TV composers, here are some of their works.

  • 1 Holst

    2 John Adams (orchestral not operatic)

    3 Tchaikovsky

    4 Prokoviev

    5 Michael Land

  • Yeah I agree, it's wonderful I just prefer his minimalist work myself, Harmonielehre, Common Tones in Simple time and Short ride in a Fast Machine. I think these pieces are up there with Prokoviev and Holst, just not so much the operatic ones. They're still brilliant.

  • Oh, I know. I'm a particular great fan of his opera Akhnaten among other works, but in the first row of five I mentioned, he wouldn't be in the top 5 for me :-)
