Get to know composers!

Postby BrokenFingers » 08 Jun 2010, 01:19

So, hopefully people will actually, you know, play a part in this thread since it's basically just been PianistSkater and I on the forum for the last 2 weeks...

Anyway, there are some composers that I would like to know better, and certainly to hear some of their works, so I've decided to make this thread. Basically, someone will post a composer that they would like to know more about, and the next person who feels like they know enough about that composer can post a little about the composer and some favorite works.

It's happened before to me that I've looked up a composer and been dissatisfied with what I found, only to months later fall in love with the composer. So, uh, I'll start!

Unfortunately, I know little about Britten, although I love his Guide to the Orchestra!

I would love to know more about Sibelius. I love his music, but all I know about him is that he was Finnish!
