Default The Most Underrated Composer

What do you guys think. I think personally is Josquin Des Prez. He was a Renaissance Composer and wrote varations on Gegorian Chants and also Masses. He mastered polyphonic harmony using mostly imiatation. It's really good music if you like Choral stuff. His music is hard to find also, but it's worth it if you do. So who do you guys think is the most underrated?

Post Erik Satie

Erik Satie. Its still hard to find a lot of his music besides the overdone (but still lovely) Gymnopedies & Gnossiennes. Socrate, Parade, Sports et Divertissements, and other works are hard to find...

Chopin, on the other hand... :B

Anyways...

I'm going to agree with Fool on the Hill, Erik Satie is really up there. Conlon Nancarrow, too...despite his jumps in popularity, I never really hear much about him.

OK Frank Zappa. His classical pieces are phenomenal and disgustingly underated.
