Beethoven, easily the greatest composer in history.

Mine would be Bach.

I would also opt for Beethoven, closely followed Bach and Brahms - regarding the "big B's".

But there are many other great componists (Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Chopin, Vivaldi, Ravel, Mozart, Pachelbel, Verdi, Berlioz, Liszt, .... - it would be too long to list all af them - lol) from the past and from more recent times.

Rachmaninov ranks high too.  This heartbreakingly beautiful Magnificat has just the right blend of joy and sadness.

Yes, he does - I like also to listen to his piano compositions, for instance, concerto no 1, op. 1:

@ Marianne:

Yes, but it looks quite difficult to play.  :)

Marianne Marianne Dec 16, 2016

Oh yes, they look indeed very complicated, and it was said that they are difficult to play.

And he changes key every 3 minutes:O :)

Marianne Marianne Dec 18, 2016

Wow - lol - wait a second - don't you mean nearly every line?


TheOtherTink Marianne Dec 19, 2016

Yes, sometimes at least.  :D

Marianne Marianne Dec 19, 2016

Lol, estimating frequencies, sizes, etc. allows many definitions - lol. :angel::D
