82 Johann Friedrich Franz Burgmüller
83 Stephen Heller
84 Leonard Bernstein Leonard Bernstein
85 Georg Philipp Telemann
86 Charles 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.

87 John Rutter

Look a the World is an exceptional choral piece.
