Back to the routes of the thread, back to “classic” authors, don’t noticed if Albinoni was already mentioned.

Here “Adagio in G Minor”:



Not so “classical”, but probably still considered more erudite than pop, Joaquín Rodrigo

Here, “Concierto de Aranjuez”:



Edit:

Also from the XX century, Ravel, with his fantastic Bolero:



Edit:

Oh! How could I forgot, going back a “couple” of centuries, still didn’t saw him here:

Gregorio Allegri, Miserere mei

As a former professional musician graduate from high school in a previous life, i agree with all already mentioned.
We could add another ones, for example, Debussy...etc
But what about this phenomenon?

Only few musicians have capability to play the famous Black Page.
Polyrhythm, dodecaphonism, hexatonic patterns, quarter-tone intervals.....😨
Perhaps the greatest composer of the 20th century.

One other composter no one has mentioned but who I've learned to appreciate is Hector Berlioz. He was a friend of Chopin and Liszt--in fact, one big factor in Liszt's development as a composer was hearing Berlioz and he had a large influence on the Russian composers such as Glinka and Mussorgsky.

Although most people think only of the Symphonie Fantastique, he wrote a lot of other things that are just as good or better: Harold in Italy, Requiem, L' Enfance du Christ And his Memoirs are a really fun read of the "Romantic" era.

Modern movie music composers like John Williams deserves honorable mention.

Almost all the composers mentiohed are westerners. Is there any non-western composer, say from Indoa or China, that should be mentioned?

Excellent! Thank you for posting it.

As I was listening to the clapping, it occured to me that clapping is might be a a western custom that was adopted. Did Eastern (Chinese, Japanese) audience always clap to show their appreciate? If not, how did Eastern audiences show their appreciation of a fine performance befoee clapping was adopted? Something I never thought about before.
