The Top Ten
Doesn't deserve this list - jack2244
Is this all because of his kinderszenens'?
Whenever I hear some melodiless, emotionless, predictable and wishy-washy generic classical piece on the radio, it always turns out to be either Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky or Schubert (sorry to Schubert fans, if they exist). - Alkadikce
I think he would be glad if he saw himself on this list. - Alkadikce
His "hits" are great, but I could bear listening Etudes op.10 for 2 minutes.
Edit: I didn't vote for him, and didn't add him to the list. - Alkadikce
Are you OK? - Metal_Treasure
He's just hard to appreciate. He doesn't concentrate on melodies but atmospheres and feelings. His music is not for catchy tunes and singing it while doing your work, but for processing a certain emotion. - Alkadikce
His music is not even music- it's more percussive sounds- just listen to Towards the Flame and you'll understand.
This piece alone is why he deserves number one on this list. But, in general, his music is so cheery to the point that I want to kill myself.
Why? Just because Nazis loved him does not make him bad. - Alkadikce
