This blog is a chance for us to share reviews, commentary, and interviews with you, but it's also a chance for everyone out there to talk about classical music. Every Friday, I'm going to post a question to help get this discussion started. This week, I want to know:
Who is your favorite composer?
At first I thought this was an easy question, but when I tried to come up with answer, I couldn't pick just one...Beethoven? Sibelius? Berlioz? Osvaldo Golijov? JS Bach? Mahler? And if I spent more than a minute thinking about it, I'd be even less sure! It's just too hard for me to decide. So, here's an alternate request:
Who is one of your favorite composers?
Now you don't have to feel bad if you leave someone out--this name can be one of your (many) favorites. And I'll be flexible; you can list a few runners-up.
To post comments, you do have to create an account, over on the left. It's pretty quick and painless, and then you can use it to post comments any time you want.
I'll post my answer some time next week--it's your turn first!
