Who created the best music?

Who was more musically diverse?

Who made the best compositions?

Who was the biggest musical genius?

I was gonna post a replay saying:

"Neither. Bach > All"

However, you included a Bach option.

I'm not really a fan of the baroque or classical era so I'm going with all the other ones.

I must say, the compositional skill of Lil Wayne exceed any of your options, TS.

EDIT!!: But seriously, Bach. I was thinking of starting a boy band that pays tribute to Bach, called the Bach Street Boys.

He has only a handful of compositions that are awe-inspiring, whereas pretty much all of Mozart's and Bach's (especially Mozart, imo) music is phenomenal. Except for really early Mozart, when he was like 13 - that stuff is kinda meh.


All IMHO, of course.

I'm a Beethoven man. Mozart has some amazing compositions, but Beethoven is just so consistently moving, it's ridiculous...

the exact opposite of my opinion... how intriguing

Out of the 3 in the poll, Bach, cause Classical blows male genitals. 20th Century, Impressionism, and even Romantic are more interesting than Baroque and Classical though, imho.

Bach is without a doubt, the most prolific and influential composer out of the three. He established the harmonic possibilities that everyone in the common practice came to rely on, including Mozart and Beethoven. Bach's mastery of counterpoint and harmonic innovations makes him the father of western music. He explored all 24 chromatic keys in the Well Tempered Clavier, writing material that, even by today's standards, can still be considered ahead of the time. His Goldberg Variations feature canons at every interval, and they all conform to the same harmonic form. And the 14 fugues of the Art of Fugue shows how much he can do with just one single idea. His output is almost unmatched, writing about 4000-8000 compositions, depending on whether individual movements are counted. He created polyphonic possibilities on seemingly monophonic instruments, such as the violin, cello, and even flute and pushed their technical limit. His music is possibly the most universal music in existance, as they can be adapted to almost any ensemble and style, ie Swingle Singers, Bobby McFerrin, Malmsteen, etc. Even today's popular music derives from his ideas.

Mozart also had a great control of composition techniques, but he often didn't show it in his works. However, he was clearly ahead of his time in a few select works, such as the opening of the dissonant quartet, the multi-thematic overlapping orchestral sections in Le Nozze di Figaro, and the polyphonic Requiem which features a brilliant double fugue. He is also a master of orchestration at a time of its infancy.

Beethoven is my least favorite, but he expanded and challenged the musical forms. He was so careful to structure every section the right way. He also brought out more chromaticism and dissonance in conventional harmony. And of course, he's known as the bridge between classical and romantic eras by emphasizing on his personal voice, instead of pleasing courts and the upper class.

...modes and scales are still useless.

As the starting point of the finest artistic movement ever - Romanticism - my vote goes to Beethoven. Simply for the Late String Quartets. I still haven't found a piece as moving and stunning as the Quartet #15 in its entirety.

Oh, also, The Ninth Symphony is the most beautiful journey of happiness, I've never heard such a wonderful and stirring work of joy as that, and he was totally deaf when he wrote it.

From around 4:50 onwards is my favourite building melody I've heard for the strings, it grows to something so heart wrenching and phenomenal by the 7-8 minute mark.
