None classical composers are too musicially advanced (and most far to up their own arse).

Popular music is Neanderthal compared to most Classical music.

I'd go with none. There's several hundred years' difference in musical concepts between them. That is to say, general mainstream music. And most of the classical music made these days is sh!t in my opinion.

Mozart was a little crazy so i think...Cannibal Corpse
So that with good courage we say, “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Wagner would be in a NSBM band, Beethoven in some prog metal band, Mozart in power metal, Bach in symphonic power metal.

Pechabel = Collab With JerryC
Paganini = Y.M's Rising Force
Vivaldi = Paul Gilbert / CoB

You guys are misinterpreting the thread btw. He's saying what if they were alive today and didn't make classical music.

Bach would definitely be in Skid Row!

And to answer the question correctly, Yo-Yo Mah would still be doing classical music today.

Wait...

Why do we also assume a time-travelled Classical composer would join a rock band? Why wouldn't they, oh I dunno, make Classical Music?

Because when they made it, it wasn't classical, it was the music of the period.
It's classical to us because of its age.


Same as how "classic rock" is rock of a previous age.

If they were to play classical today, it wouldn't make sense, since most of these composers were innovators and contributed a lot to music in originality. Thus, they would either make totally new music, or go in existing genres and expand those.

Not to mention they can now use a plethora of instruments that previously were unheard of.

Some people think the typical fans of classical music = the typical composers. They've got it all wrong. They were the rock stars of their day. Accused of being taught by the devil or being too rude and risqué in their movements while playing.

Paganini would be Malmsteen , Beethoven would play with Opeth and meshuggah, Mozart would play for Dream Theater, and Bach would be poor, because seriously, Bach sucks.

Except most composers were really virtuosic at their respective instruments...

lolol Elitist idiot. Omg I'm making a funny comment on how Dream Theater makes bad music but I'm only making it subtle through my sheer wit. Grow the **** up.
Oh and on topic, yeah I doubt they would fit in any band....probably just conduct symphony's like they did then...

I say they'd spend there 2nd life? listenin' to all the new sounds, genres, instruments and whatever. If they did write I think prog would be up pretty high ( BTBAMish ) or some EDM ( all synth really ).

You're both wrong. He'd be the keyboardist in Bon Jovi. Jesus, didn't Bill and Ted teach you anything?

Paganini would be playing in Cacaphony with Jason Becker and Marty Friedmann (he'd cure Jason with his string skipping pizzacato violin sweeping).

Franz Liszt would play keyboards for Steve Vai, next to Billy Sheehan.

Mozart would play in some pop band and bring the art of virtuosity back into mainstream music.

Vivaldi would be in Harmonium arguing about whether or not they should write a fifth piece about an imaginary season (if today was in 1975 of course).
