Greatest Romantic Classical Composers


The Top TenXW

1Frederic Chopin
2Pyotr Illych Tchaikovsky

Totally first! I know Chopin was one of the greater piano composers, but Tchaikovsky's magnificence in EVERY PIECE is just beautiful.

The Best Swanlake, 1812 Overture, The Nutcracker, overture romeo and julliette

3Ludwig van Beethoven

Beethoven was both classical and romantic composer and he was the greatest of all time in my opinion.

4Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
5Franz Liszt
6Felix Mendelssohn

This guy is really influential, especially in the finding of Bach. I really like his string symphonies, they're light and elegant. His violin concerto and octet are of course time-honored, so I think he deserves over Liszt at least.

7Carl Maria Van Weber
8Modest Mussorgsky
9Johannes Brahms
10Robert Schumann

I know it's been said many times, but it really is true: Schumann's music sounds more recognizably "Romantic" than any that of any other composer. - alexpijanowski

One of the greatest composers in nearly every aspect- from chamber music, to lieder, to symphonies, to solo piano, to choral, and more. It is a real shame that he appears forgotten on this list.
