Greatest Classical Composers
The Contenders: Page 6XW
One of the best violin composers in my opinion.V1 Comment
One of the most underrated composers of all time... He has written some popular tunes such as the pizzicato from Sylvia and the flower duet from Lakmé which many people would recognize. But aside from that, his work "Coppelia" is one of the greatest ballets in my opinion, up there with Tchaikovsky's ballets. It has drama, excitement and catchy and fun melodies throughout the entire work... Funny enough, Tchaikovsky apparently held Delibes in higher regards than Brahms. Even if you disagree with that, I think the complexity and creativity of Delibes's music is no doubt up there with the other great composers. He needs the credit he deserves! - Absynthe1812
Come on, he wrote Dance of the Hours! - Absynthe1812
He's like the father of Russian classical music! Listen to his Ruslan and Ludmila overture - Absynthe1812
Richard Strauss of Elektra, Salome and all his operas, his enchanting symphonic poems and songs is 90th? Wow... I put him at the bottom of the top ten... An amazingly inventive composer.
The four last songs must put Strauss up among the great composers; and Tot und Verklaerung says something to us about the human condition. He is certainly a greater composer than some of those listed above...
His waltzes are to die for, I just soar whilst listening to them. Blue Danube, Voices of Spring, Annen-Polka...
