The Great Composers

Every tune you ever heard was originally composed by someone. Even the traditional or folk tunes, passed down over the ages by oral tradition, have their composers, but we don't know who they were!

In this section you will find information about all the great classical composers,  with lists of some of the best tunes that each composer wrote.  Click on the Composer, at the left of any row in the list below, to see his/her tunes and movements.  Click on column headings to re-order the list by that heading.
