Greatest Romantic Classical Composers
The Top Ten
Chopin's music basically sums up the Romantic era- to know Chopin is to know Romantic music. It's also good to know that he has strong classical roots as he loved the music of J. S. Bach. Hear Chopin in the hands of the right performer and you will be blown away.
Easy win for Fryderyk in this category. - cwysocki
EASY WIN FOR CHOPIN
Totally first! I know Chopin was one of the greater piano composers, but Tchaikovsky's magnificence in EVERY PIECE is just beautiful.
The godfather of 20th century music, and beyond!
The Best Swanlake, 1812 Overture, The Nutcracker, overture romeo and julliette
Beethoven was both classical and romantic composer and he was the greatest of all time in my opinion.
Vastly underrated. Most people only know a handful of pieces and claim him to have no substance, which is far from the truth. Just give Annees de pelerinage, or the B minor sonata, or Nuages Gris a listen and prepared to get awed by his harmonic innovativeness. As a man, he is the only Romantic composer that earns my respect. (Read the Walker biographies! )
His piano sonatas are technically perfect but underrated!
His musical compositions are very
He is not just a composer but also
His piano sonata number 1 is emotional as it made me cry
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.
There were a lot of great romantic composers, plus the romantic period was long so it (kind of) had composers like Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, but as far as composers born, lived, and died in the romantic period, Brahms is the best. To me the integrity and detail in his music is like the romantic equivalent to Bach. Brahms was a genius.
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.
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
This composer is so underrated!
I only want everyone to hear his Piano concertos, It's beyond, the feeling every part of this song gas somthing new,
Wow. I love him
What... #14?! People are so clueless
Great French horn solos
He is great!
First symphony: epic third movement
Second symphony: OMGOMGOMG
All in all, he has to go higher!
HE is the most underrated composer of all time
Debussy's pieces are soft and sweet to the ear. Listening to his music is as magical as looking at Monet painting : you will almost feel yourself inside one of these paintings.
Most romantically provocative pieces ever.
Long live Sibelius
Very similar to Rachmaninoff, super emotional, super crazy.
