For anyone who likes Mahler I have a suggestion of a (sort of rarity) that has become one of my favorites: Franz Schmidt's Symphony #4. It's pretty dark (he wrote it after the death of his daughter I think). Starts out (and ends) with a mournful trumpet solo and then has one of the lushest melodies in the strings I've ever heard. One long movement. Worth checking out if you like Mahler.

Got into classical music since last year. Last October had the chance to listen live Beethoven's 9th.
Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies are my favorites, but recently I've tried to explore Russians, specially Rachmaninoff.

What, no examples from Hearts of Iron?
Tonnes of Mahler, Wagner and Strauss. Also Legend of the Galactic Heroes is like 90% these composers, especially Gustav Mahler.

I love a ton of composers. I have a sweet spot for baroque music especially. My favorite composer has got to be bach, i think his music is almost unrivaled.

I too am crazy for baroque music. But slightly more dotty for the late Renaissance music of viol consort music.

Some composers are:
William Lawes
Alfonso Ferrabosco
Orlando Gibbons
John Coprario
Christopher Simpson
John Jenkins
Matthew Locke

The list goes on, and Jordi Savall et al have played it.

Also quite delightful is the Harp concerto by Reinhold Gliere - particularly the last movement (about the last 12 minutes)

Here is an excellent version on youtube:

Berlioz deserves to be mentioned. I've just recently discovered his work, and I'm captivated.

Since this is about the greatest composers of all time; this may have already been mentioned.
