Chopin is a genius. I recently saw Lang Lang perform here in DC. He played some Chopin. Wonderful stuff.

I'm a big fan of Phillip Glass and Igor Stravinsky.


I'm a dancer, and I've danced to Phillip Glass' work. It's quite an experience! Stravinsky is somethin' else! Firebird!

How come mine wasn't talked about? =/

Uematsu is one of the geniuses of our day. He is by far the most amazing composer I have ever heard.

And that's not an insult to any other composer, either. I love Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Rachiminov (sp?), Vivaldi, etc. but Uematsu just adds a whole new level to composing, IMO.


Also, "One Winged Angel", "To Zanarkand", and "J-E-N-O-V-A" are some of his best, but most all of his work is amazing.

Oh, fair enough.

If it makes it any easier, he's the composer on (just about) every Final Fantasy game, and he also did work on Chrono Trigger, along with Yasunori Mitsuda.

Modest Mussorgsky is probably my favorite composer. I did a painting for art class based on Fantasia's interpretation of "Night on Bald Mountain."

I also like Copland, a bunch of Romantic/Classical/Baroque composers I don't feel like listing, John Williams (the Star Wars John Williams, not the classical guitarist of the same name with whom I'm not familiar), James Horner, Hans Zimmer, Klaus Badelt, and especially Danny Elfman. Danny Elfman and Tim Burton are a match made in heaven.

Nah, it's all about Koji Kondo.

True, Kondo is one great composer, and has wrote some of the most memorable, if not THE most memorable, video game songs ever.

But there's just something about Uematsu for me. It's the way he seamlessly combines so many styles, and, basically, revoultionized music in RPGs, and still makes an impact to this day.

His abilities to capture the mood in a game is just unmatched, as well, IMO.

True, Kirkhope is one great composer.

Also, whoever wrote the music for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel did a GREAT job.

I can't find the person who composed it, though. =/
