Thanks for sharing that, Paul. I fell in love with this piece.

I think that people tend to be entirely too apologetic for liking Phillip glass. I think he's a great composer. The rest of your list is pretty spot on too.

In my novice opinion:

Beethoven
Penderecki
Bach
Gershwin
Tchaicovsky/Chopin

I really like the tunefulness of Tchaicovsky's stuff, and Chopin has really great atmosphere as well as technique. Gershwin I should get more familiar with before i include him for sure. The other guys i luuuuuuv.

Penderecki, niiiice. "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima" is an excellent composition. It's also a great way to get people to leave you alone, haha.

Yeah, me and my girlfriend were fighting while I had it on for homework one time and she told me to turn it off so no one would die.
