Beethoven

Flower Child 08-07-2009 11:12 AM

Vivaldi is my favorite, the rest are in no particular order.

Vivaldi
Gershwin (he counts right?)
Chopin
Verdi
Tchaikovsky

Jsung 08-07-2009 10:59 PM

Vivaldi is up there along with Mozart.
And burn me at the stake for herecy, but the classical work of alot of modern composers pushes up past composers like Chopin for me. Even full orchestrals by Nobuo Uemetsu, the music director of the Final Fantasy series. The music itself may not be up to par with the early classical composers, but when you put it in the context of the story and message it is trying to portray, you would struggle to find any artist that can compete.

untitledlol 08-07-2009 11:42 PM

In no particular order
Chopin (for being cool, and composing songs like winter wind and the ocean)
Mozart(some of the most memorable songs)
Tchaikovsky(badass bro)
Brahms
Beethoven (even the ice cream man plays his songs)

and if I could squeeze in a sixth bro, it would be dvorak, because his music is so dramatic.

Svengali 08-19-2009 07:03 PM

Grieg
Tchaikovsky
Wagner
Debussy
Chopin
