Puccini!
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Ha, this got moved into Opera and Vocal, and I was just thinking that probably my favourite complete work by either is Verdi's String Quartet in E minor. Note: string quartets are not operas, or vocal works.

Puccini doesn't even stand up to Verdi's toes. He is a terrible composer with a grotesque moustache. Verdi all the way!

And my favorite work by Beethoven is Fidelio, but they insist on talking about him in the classical sections.

The classifications are not chiseled in stone! Verdi is known by 99.9% of music lovers as an opera composer. He is much more comfortable here, surrounded by other opera creators and singers.  ;)

I agree.  Since I listen to my head and my heart, I chose both in the poll.  Puccini pulls at my emotions in an immediate and overt way; that is his style, and he was very, very good at it.  I know I am being manipulated emotionally, but I love it anyway.  On an intellectual level, I find Verdi to be more interesting, although at times he can also play with my emotions (but generally not with the same intensity and immediacy as Puccini).

My collection contains a lot of both composers.  I haven't counted everything up, but I think I have a bit more by Verdi.  Of course, Verdi was more prolific, so since I actively collect music by both composers, it is statistically likely that I will have more by Verdi.  I also listen to both fairly often, but I probably listen to Puccini a bit more.

Verdi lived longer.

VERDI, always Verdi, Victor Emmanuel, Re d'Italia. Poor sod even got lumbered with that by 19th century graffitiists.

What did Puccini ever have to put up with, smudges on his white suit?
