This thread looks familiar, but I'll contribute - Bach by a large margin over all others.
You are correct. We have been down this path many times before.
That is why I will pass.

By the way, Clara Schumann stands out here like a sore thumb.
It's sad because she may have had the musical potential to stand with the others but was marred by societal expectations, responsibilities as a wife and a mother, her concert career, and self-doubt

Or "Why did you put Chopin and Rachmaninov on the list instead of Tippett and Judith Weir?"
I'm just saying that Clara Schumann is not popular, but the four I mentioned are. Monteverdi-- probably the most famous early music composer, and a real innovator. Shostakovich-- one of the most popular 20th century composers, with famous symphonies and a well-regarded set of string quartets. Schoenberg-- influential, and many like his music. Bruckner-- not that popular among casual CM fans but popular enough here that he could get a vote or two.

Well, Clara Wieck (Schumann) has so far received more votes than Chopin, Strauss (?Richard, ?Johann), Verdi, Handel, Elgar, Debussy ...................
