Dear Anthony, U don't know about these composer but all of these very famous if you r interested to know about them then you can find lot of information about them on internet.
After I listed my top 5 "Classical" composers, I realized that only one of them was actually Classical.

Here's the breakdown:

Rachmaninoff Russian late Romanticism
Chopin Romantic
Debussy Modern, Impressionist
Beethoven On the cusp of Romantic leading away from Classical
Mozart Classical

Although the term Classical is used so broadly anyway, I don't know if I'm being too geeky about this...

AE :blah:
Does this mean we have to have more genres?
