    Default A Composer in a Word

    Imagine a single descriptive word that you would give any composer you know. Not really an adjective, but more like a name or a state of being, ex. The courageous, the rebel, the angel, the epic hero, etc. although I would prefer just one word.

    I will begin with just one, and I'll go into detail later why I chose this label below:

    Glazunov: Janus.

    Are you stuck in a dead end job? Are you squandering the precious gift of life in front of the idiot box? Are you on your third beer of the evening? Well maybe it's time you joined the exciting field of monorail conducting at the Lanley Institute!

    Indescribable would be a good word for Zappa, I think.

    Arensky: the Dreamer.

    I tally now 5 separate compositions of his about Dreams. I think I can now call him obsessed now, don't you think?

    Also, please feel free to explain why that word was chosen.

    Do you love Ludwig Van Beethovens music?
    Does his life-story/music inspire you?
    Can you strongly relate to the emotions on his music?
