Although classical music may not be everyone’s cup of tea, you have to admit that it had a tremendous influence not only on modern music but on music as an art form. Among many, there are few composers who revolutionized the craft in their time, composers who have inspired generations of artists since.
For your consideration, we thought long and hard about the minds who had the greatest impact on music the way only great composers can and we settled down on ten who we consider being the most influential throughout history. So without further ado, here are the ten greatest composers of all time.
Brahms loved form, and he uncompromisingly stuck to it. Of the two piano concertos he wrote, the 2nd is the most monumental piano concerto in music history. The symphonies he wrote were also quite remarkable, and a Requiem in German, a violin concerto, is arguably one of the finest violin concertos ever written. It is also considered one of his best ever works, one that is among the most frequently performed pieces of all time.
