A list of the most original and distinctive sounding composers.

The Top TenXW

1Wagner (1813 - 1883)
2Beethoven (1770 - 1850)
3Stravinsky (1882 - 1971)
4Birtwistle (B.1934)
5Mahler ( 1860 - 1911 )
6Vaughan-williams (1872 - 1958)
7Andrew Lloyd Webber (B.1948)
8Debussy (1862 - 1918)
9Chopin (1810 - 1849)
10Bach (1685 - 1750)

Whenever one of his compositions comes on the radio, it's instantly recognizable. A gorgeous melody combined with plenty of moving parts. MikeFuller, I hope you don't mind you adding my adding Brian Wilson to this list? Even though he is in the popular field, I consider him a composer, as he scored most of Pet Sounds, which is essentially a thirteen movement "pocket symphony". - beatles

I liked a lot your list MikeFuller. I vote for Bach because he is divine, I love his spirituality and the way he combines joy and sorrow in his music. He makes me feel complete. He has everything in his notes and he also goes beyond them in a very touching way.

The Contenders

12Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791)Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg.

Why not he produced some of the most famous music including our well know song "twinkle twinkle little star". plus I haven't even heard of these other people. who are the first people that pop in your head when you hear classical composers. I think of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven. WHY ARE THEY NOT HIGHER

13Brian Wilson (B. 1942)Brian Douglas Wilson is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer best known for being the multi-tasking leader and co-founder of the Beach Boys.
