    while the first 5 are all great contenders and many of the options are surely 'greater' composers than my choice, I say Dvorak.

    Whats the whole attraction behind Mahler?

    It makes you appear intelligent if you rate him at the top

    This puzzles me too. If you look into the thread about favorite sacred work, you'll see lots of German Requiems, Verdi Requiems, Berlioz Requiems, Rachmaninoff Vespers (!) and not a single St. Matthew's Passion or Monteverdi's Marian Vespers, which are arguably two of the greatest sacred works ever written. There are even some trying yo say that Mahler 2nd and 8th are sacred...

    I agree, the Baroque and early music composers are very poorly discussed, why?? some of the most wonderful music came from these earlier times, I wonder if it is due to the younger average age of the members here?? perhaps some are relatively new to serious music and have yet to explore the earlier periods in any depth

    So it looks as if three of us agree

    Beethoven 20, Mahler 13, Mozart 5 ?? Fine, I'll go with Mozart since Haydn is not there.
