Well speaking in modern and contemporary terms, I’ve been taking an extreme liking to Philip Glass. Respectively, he’s more modern than most mentioned here, but I think he deserves an honorable mention.

Suggestions:

Philip Glass – The Photographer
Philip Glass- Glassworks
Philip Glass – Music With Changing Parts

Antonín Dvořák, Dmitri Shostakovich, Gustav Mahler and Antonio Vivaldi aren't often held in as high regard as Back, Mozart or Beethoven, but they should be. Richard Wagner is also extraordinarily good.

My top two favorites of all time are Chopin and Rachmaninoff...

Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, and Mozart.

Mozart never used to be a huge thing for me, but my college choir performed Levin's completion of Mozart's Requiem and I fell completely and totally in love with it and sought out even more of his music

I also like Phillip Glass after somebody gave me a copy of his album
'Violin Concerto;Prelude & Dance from Akhnaten' which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I am just ,for the first time, properly exploring classical music as I have a few family members who are really into classical,
I recentley got Leonard Bernstein's adaption of Robert Schumann's 'Symphonie No.1 'Spring' Piano Concerto' cd which I really enjoyed.

Also my mum gave me a live album by German violinist Yehudi Menuhin called 'Brahms Violin Concerto' which was recorded in 1943.
I particularly liked around track 6 where he does a solo piece on the violin.

What I have noticed early on is that I've really taken to the avant-garde side of things such as the aforementioned Phillip Glass & others such as Glenn Branca or Rhys Chatham.
As for the 'proper' classical music, I have a preference for piano based artists, several of which I have been researching and have found a few on download: Category:Classical pianists - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Also I much prefer the concerto side of things. (Although I probably haven't heard enough to make a proper judgement yet)
So any recommendations based on what Ive heard so far?
P.S. I will check out the PG albums you mentioned in your post

Antonino Vivaldi has always been my favorite Classical composer. But I also appreciate Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven.

I have very diverse taste is music as it is.

Surely it must be the great Giacomo Puccini, if we are to include operatic composers in this.


If not, perhaps the noble Felix Mendelssohn or the enlightening Camille Saint-Saëns?
