Victor Bruns may be a big name on my list.
Beethoven, Chopin, Debussey and Bach, I'd hardly consider them underappreciated (ESPECIALLY BACH AND BEETHOVEN)

Mahler pffft. I think he's overrated.
Kalevi Aho-severely underrated. Simon Proctor too. Come on, Serpents and Contrabassoons and Tubas need love too-we're the black sheep of the orchestra.

PS. i take that back-Schoenberg is SEVERELY underrated-he's a goddamn genius-so is Toru Takemitsu-I know way too many classical composers lol

Chopin isn't underrated. He's excellent and he gets plenty of credit for it.

Paganini is very underrated. He's a virtuoso.

So who do you guys think is the most underrated?

I think Sergei Rachmaninoff, Dmitri Shostakovich and Erik Satie are underrated, but I'm probably not knowledgeable enough about classical to have a truly educated opinion on that.

I still need to hear more Bartok, Liszt and Schoenberg.
