Your top 26-50 favorite composers!!!

Symphonic Addict:
YES! This is an interesting (hopefully no tedious for many!) number to think about. We have rather clear our first favorite 25 choices, but, what about the next 25? I wouldn't have any problem with one made on my own:

26. Honegger
27. Szymanowski
28. Ravel
29. Tubin
30. Kabalevsky
31. Englund
32. Haydn
33. Schnittke
34. Bloch
35. Britten
36. Taneyev
37. Tippett
38. Stravinsky
39. Puccini
40. Mendelssohn
41. Rimsky-Korsakov
42. Villa-Lobos
43. Rachmaninov
44. Atterberg
45. Stenhammar
46. Glazunov
47. Myaskovsky
48. Korngold
49. Milhaud
50. Walton

The new erato:
If one excludes music earlier than 1800, which you seem to have done, I see no problem placing all these in the 26 to 50 range, with the glaring exception og Stravinsky which surely belongs in the top 10.

Agree: Britten, Tippett, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov, Walton, Ravel, Mendelssohn... they seem somewhat excessively demoted to me. Even Atterberg and Puccini, I think, deserve a 10-20 placement.

Still, league tables are always a problem. I can only post my own top 10 (and apologies for Arvo Pärt being mangled by my graphing software!) Also, apologies for not being able to attach something vaguely readable! The attachments options here are not great! I should mention, too, that that's the top 10 only since January 9th 2021. I changed my listening software then. It's only since that date it's been taking notes! But it's nevertheless probably representative (though I'd want Sibelius to be in there somewhere if I was being picky!)


musicrom:
I already have a list that I maintain, so this one is simple for me to contribute to:

26. Haydn
27. Grieg
28. Khachaturian
29. Vieuxtemps
30. Liszt
31. Borodin
32. Walton
33. Sarasate
34. Kabalevsky
35. Debussy
36. Bizet
37. Verdi
38. Schnittke
39. Scriabin
40. Wieniawski
41. Britten
42. Vivaldi
43. Puccini
44. Bruckner
45. Respighi
46. Ravel
47. Nielsen, C
48. Lindberg, M
49. Janáček
50. Goldmark, K

Somehow, I feel like I prefer OP's list however. :D
