Favorite Symphony Composers

Post by Van der Decken » Wed Apr 18, 2018 3:51 am

For me it is Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mahler, Rachmaniniv. But I don't spend much time outside of opera.

My top 5: Beethoven, Dvorak, Mahler, Sibelius & Tchaikovsky (alphabetical order!)

There are many other symphonies I like of course, so this represents composers with a set of numbered symphonies.

Everything before or after Beethoven? Talk about setting a standard! Symphonies 3 through to 9 are staggering. I know 4 and 8 are less known but they are both witty and delightful.
