Music Soothes The Savage Beast Contest

Some of you know I listen to predominantly classical music and generally start each day with coffee to two sides of an LP.  So here's the deal...

Name my favorite composer.  Let's see how many can come up w/ some names w/o googling 'most popular classical composers'...  mine might not be on that list anyway.

This will stay open until Thursday at midnight.  Rather than stop it when the correct guess comes in, if there are multiple guesses, you all win.  I have a second composer in mind too, that correct guess will merit a runner-up prize.

    I'm more of a Handel fan myself.

    I'm a fan of Tchaikovsky. You seem like the kinda guy who would appreciate cannons used as musical instruments...

    I knew there was something I liked about you when we chatted on the vherf.  There are soooo many great composers.  I'm thinking Mozart and our boy Ludwig are too plebian.   Gonna go with Dvorak.   He's obscure enough to slip by and yet intriguing enough to warrant favorite status.  (The Fourth Movement to his Ninth Symphony had to be the most fun I'd had with a French horn in my hands.)
    I'm still troubled by what I did for that Klondike bar...

    My favorite composer is Shostakovich but yours is probably Mozart

    I like Shostakovich, but I think my first CD when they came out was Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.

    Mozart is the Rocky Patel of classical music...put out a TON of stuff...most of it pretty good, but not a popular pick among aficionados.

    I think you're more of a boutique kind of guy.  That eliminates Beethoven (my fav...moonlight sonata, 5th, 9th, etc) Bach, Mozart, Hayden, Brahms, Chopin, and Tchaikovsky. 

    I'll take a WAG and go Berlioz.  Requiem was good if you're into funerals.  Symphonie fantastique was cool too, but my fav was Le Corsaire (overture op. 21).
