1. Rachmaninoff- I don't remember hearing another composer that equaled his chops. One of the best.

2. Mozart- Surely deserves a place in any top 5 for Eine Kleine Nachtmusik alone.

3. Schubert- I love the mood of his music. Probably not as accomplished as most but he certainly speaks to my ears.

4. Beethoven- If he wasn't a composer and he was born in this day and age he would have been one of those commercially huge artists that everyone hated on because he didn;t write something as great as Moonlight Sonata everytime.

5. Brahms/Haydn- I link them together because they have alot of similarities in writing epic pieces that transcend. I can't choose between them.

If I'd heard him before, I must have overlooked it. I just listened to "Symphony No. 4 in D Minor, Op. 120 (1851 - an orchestral piece)" and enjoyed it very much.

I also listened to Requiem Op. 148 (Requiem aeternam) which was a choral and dramatic composition according to Wikipedia which I like even better. Very melancholic and (without irony) dramatic.

Thanks, Paul.

IMO one of the best piano pieces, along with Chopin's 24 preludes

I actually have Evgeny Kissin performing Chopin's 24 Preludes and it's a breath-takingly beautiful performance.
