If not mentioned before, one Sergei Rachmaninov.



Read an exceptionally ****ty, 'biography' on him because I saw it was the only book in the library about him. Considering there were people like Lizst, Mozart, and Stravinsky who had entire shelves, and it looked like it would have taken me less than an hour to read through(like 20 minutes, 104 WHOLE PAGES) I thought I'd check it out. Got nothing out of it but scanty details on his life, and the name of this composition which is amazing.

One of my favourite composers is Isaac Albéniz, I especially enjoy the transcription for guitar. Really beautifull and genius, with influences of flemenco. Worth a listen : )

Mariah Carey is one of the best composers of all time.
Proof is that most of her songs landed at the number 1 charts.

Far from classical though.

What the fuck? Every Mariah Carey 'composition' is not at all in the realm of classical music. Do you know what classical music is?

Uh... You realize there's a good 90% chance somebody else wrote the instruments on those, right?

Come on! You already know this is ridiculous! Thread is about CLASSICAL MUSIC! A pop-music songwriter has nothing to do with it.
