Dvorak

His New World Symphony is possibly my favorite piece of music ever.

I used to think in terms of a single favorite composer. But I don't have any such thing now. But I would share these "groups":

TOP group: Beethoven, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Ravel, Hindemith, Menotti, Barber, Poulenc

SECONDARY group: Bach, Dvorak, R Strauss, Debussy, Faure, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Ives, Gershwin, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Bernstein, Copland, John Adams

And another group, that I like because of ONE or two specific pieces: Boccherini, Bizet, Liszt, Leoncavallo, Mussorgsky, Kodaly, Dukas, Respighi, Borodin, Orff, Britten

For me it is Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, I do like Mozart, but just not as much as I prefer Beethoven!

Chopin all the way. Listen to Scherzo #2 and you'll know what I mean. And Fantasie-Impromptu is one of the funnest songs to play on the piano, once you master it.

hello guys, but nothing compares to Beethoven do they?...Beethoven had a significant role in expanding the size of an orchestra.

I have just recently started listening to classical music on a frequent basis, a great morning radio show I listen to. I had previously only really listened to most the famous ones previously mentioned, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and Tchaikovsky. I have to say out of all of them Beethoven was the most impressive. I particularly enjoy Bach as well, but I don't prefer the Barque era's sound as much as the Classical's.
