    How about just, grand composer? Personally I’m a Brahms girl but even I know there’s just too many to narrow it down like that. I mean I know they’re all dead but it’s still painful.

    That came out all wrong. I’m not a necrophiliac. Well ok maybe I am, platonically.

    He is *the* greatest composer! This is my favorite picture of him (taken a few months before his death). This man had one foot in the grave his whole life, and yet he managed to revolutionize the classical forms of composition, while inventing new forms for the Romantic era. His works are some of the most technically challenging of all known works for the piano, and yet they all have gorgeous melodies and minimal repetition, since he hated repetition and always managed to squeeze in some variations on his main theme.

    As far as piano goes, Chopin is likely my favorite. I’m actually in the process of rediscovering his works as we speak, I’m working on a few his of Preludes and Nocturnes right now. Amazing stuff.

    Then on occasion, I’ll go back and listen to some good old Beethoven. Pure pissed off, arrogant dick-swinging….yet it’s so perfect sometimes…

    I didn’t know Severus Snape was a composer. Considering how misunderstood he was, it’s not surprising he had hidden talents.
