Pretty keen to read your top composers!
1- Franz Liszt. I love how visionary his music was, from his exceptional technique on the piano, his ability to write some beautiful pieces in different styles and his opening towards the impressionism style at the end of his life.
His piece: Hungarian Rhapsody no.2. No I have not discovered this piece through Tom and Jerry, but rather it was the piece that made me interested in classical music during my teenage years. Since then I have listened to it probably a million times!
2- Claude Debussy. The master of tone colours. Every time I listen to him I found inspiration and my imagination gets filled by beautiful landscapes of nature. His music to me his very visual and absolutely stunning.
His piece: I was hesitating between a few of his pieces, but I must say Rêverie has something almost magical every time I hear it (even though apparently he did not like this piece after all!)
3 - Jacob Collier. Yep big leap in time… I just love his excitement and passion about music, and all the new theories and ways of composing and making music he’s bringing on the table. Such an incredible musician and composer… I had the chance to saw him perform last month and it was just incredible seeing him play. I am actually pretty keen to see what else his mind will offer, as he is still early in his career!!
His piece: I got to say, his version of Moon River is just something. His harmonies are just so rich I feel dazed by its complexity and beauty.
Oof, that was a tough one! Feel free to share yours guys, would love to hear all about it!
