Beethoven. Debussy. Ravel. Stravinsky. Bob Marley. Would run into a burning building to save their complete works for the benefit of all humanity.

I highly appreciate most of the great composers. But if I should pick one particular who touches my heart in a special way, it would be Gabriel Faure. Not only the Requiem or the famous Siciliano and Pavane, but also his piano music.

I feel very strongly about the first (Eb minor) Nocturne.

Scriabin is the one for me, from early to late. I also love both Chopin and Rachmaninoff for solo piano (and others), but I'd pick Scriabin each and every day as my favorite composer for the piano.

Since the hole in my chest is covered with a rubber guitar sound hole cover, it's hard for me to resonate. 😜

Even if Vivaldi is "only" the 100th greatest or 200th greatest composer, that's still pretty darn good. If one looks at IMSLP it becomes clear that the huge majority of composers are completely unknown. I don't think comparing composers to one of the really great composers and thus concluding they're lacking makes much sense.

Oh, I never compare anyone to "the really great composers" (whoever they are). In fact I don't really compare much at all, I see no point in that. But I do classify. And in my classification Vivaldi belongs to the "nothing worth listening" category with a few other composers. Just my opinion of course.

The "Seasons" concerti are extremely good, the work just suffers from overexposure of the same few bars..
