    Default Who wrote string music that is in the PD? (Ex, Mendelssohns strings symphonies)

    I've decided the best way for me to learn to write better music is to write out portions of works in Sibelius and try to get them sounding as realistic as I possibly can. So, who else besides Mendelssohn Barber, and Vivaldi wrote string music?
