Greatest Classical Composers

81Charles Villiers Stanford

Before touching beethoven mozart sibelius brahms haydn,etc. Sir Charles Villiers Stanford s 3rd symphony Irish is the first symphony I have loved seriously. I always wonder how could people nowadays not discovering him! He is a great Irish figure. He is also the teacher of Ralph Williams and Gustav Holst. His symphonies were performed throughout Europe in the late 19th. Gustav Mahler had also conducted his famous symphony no.3. If you have already familiar with or even tired of the repeating performances nowdays, go try out his work! I would certainly recommend his all 7 symphonies, his 6 Irish raphsody, and his choral works! Love live Sir Stanford.

82John Rutter

Look a the World is an exceptional choral piece.

99Josquin des Prez

Not for me the greatest actually, that would be Bach or Vivaldi. But he was by far the greatest composer of his day, with a colossal reputation, and his influence is widespread even today. "Josquin will survive because his best music really is as magnificent as everybody has always said it was." - Richard Sherr

The one composer who deserves to stands among the legends
