Now, this is a fixed race. There're SCADS more giants from this near-150 year span.

Bach, Vivaldi, Haydn, Beethoven, and Scarlatti...

Problem with this one is it overlaps Baroque with Classical, so I am forced to leave out Schubert and Mozart...

I recuse myself from this poll, as most of my listening to these composers, these days, is non-elective ; )

I voted for the usual suspects and after a brief hesitation chose Haydn instead of Handel.

Geez, James! An embarrassment of riches. At least you could follow the more common divisions - Baroque 1600-1750, Classical (c.)1740-1809. I listen to much more baroque and earlier than any other period! And only 5 votes permitted! ( :roll: Bitch bitch bitch!)

On this, the preferred number of choices SHOULD have been ten [10], but it's not my poll. This one was a toughie.

Didn't vote on this one either. There's also a missing period, beginning in 1550 and finishing in 1653: the normal life span of a Baroque composer. :lol:

Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Bach & Haydn... 8)

in any other poll, Handel and Vivaldi wouldn't be fighting it out for 6th place... :(

purposely split this list even of Baroque & Classical figures to sort-of see where this community tilted....I don't care for the classical era music/composers myself, at all. I do love Baroque though (richer & more complex). The untouchable great J.S. Bach first and foremost, boy did music go downhill for a long time after him! Also..Handel. Weiss (the lute music). Purcell (Fantasias!). etc..
