    Welcome to the forum, macgeek2005!

    Personally I couldn't decide, because I have many "favourite" composers.

    All the best,
    Daniel

    Hi macgeek2005,

    It's a hard choice, eventough I'd say that I like all of them, recently I think I've been listening more and more to the music of Mahler, so that's presently my choice.

    I'm have to have to say Beethoven, followed in a close second by Mozart. I know that sounds awfully cliched, but those two Titans of classical music are really my favourites. I like all Classical Music but their music always seems to be the best too me.

    I voted for Bach on the basis that I think he is the most intelligent composer that ever lived. I enjoy his music, but my favourite era has to be the romantic/nationalist - with Dvorak, Brahms and Elgar (problem was I could'nt vote for all three of them!)

    ooh what a poll! These composers are very different I think. It s very hard to pick one. I think each of these composers have something special in their music, which is interesting. I personally like all of these composers because THEY ARE different. Each of them have something special that the others doesn t have.

    It's too difficult because the music is so different!

    Greatest composer out of the lot - Bach! - that's obvious!

    Gut reaction favourite for me now - Mahler - but that could change as in the future, what mood I am in etc.etc.

    Difficult choice ... Mendelssohn is mine, with Bach running second.
    Yah, an old thread, but certainly worth reviving ...

    I agree. In classical music, sometimes the most popular is the best.

    Where's Vivaldi or Handel?

    I like a lot of those, though. I'd have to say Beethoven and Mozart are my absolute favorites, though.

    I'd have to say Mahler right now, but Stravinsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Dvorak are too close for me to be able to vote.

    My true favourite was not on the list, that's OK, one can't expect that every list will cover everything.

    But fortunately, I have a clear-cut 2nd place, and that is Antonín Dvořák. I am fortunate enough to be a working musician in the Czech Republic and have performed his pieces many, many times. Dvořák's music in this country is canon, everybody from Children to the Elderly know his Slavonic Dances and Symphony from the New World, whether they are classical music lovers or not.
