EASY WIN FOR CHOPIN

2 Pyotr 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

3 Ludwig van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven

4 Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
5 Franz Liszt Franz Liszt Franz Liszt was a prolific 19th-century Hungarian composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, music teacher, arranger, organist, philanthropist, author, nationalist and a Franciscan tertiary.
6 Felix 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.

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

13 Sergei Rachmaninoff
