The greatest composer EVER is....

J.S. Bach.

You're welcome.

I now command this group to take one year of sabbatical from posting anything in the group to celebrate the awesomeness of Bach.

We'll meet back here one year from today to get back to work.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH PEOPLE!!! THAT'S A WRAP!!!!

Johann Sebastian, all the way.

I'm listening to the Goldbergs as I type.

I'd never get anything done if it weren't for Johann Sebastian.

appreciatively,
Bright

My top 3 - Mahler, Shostakovich, too many to mention following that!

Shostakovich is just the third pressing of Mahler.
