The Winner...

The poll is closed, and the winner, surprisingly by no small margin, is Richard Wagner. I, personally, was betting on Tchaikovsky and hoping for Liszt, but Wagner won in a blowout. Thanks to those who voted, and we will begin to post Wagner soon.

Please continue to leave comments if you like what you hear or if you have requests.
Thanks.

im so happy cuz I voted for Wagner! I have tremendous respect for all the other candidates but I had to choose the majestic Mr. Wagner, with his theatrical flourishes, strangeness and personality.

When I first heard "Ride of the Valkyries" in highschool, it's like heaven's gates opened.

Anyway here are some "facts" about our winner, from www.about.com

Quick Facts:

* Wrote the worlds longest opera,The Ring Cycle, which lasts over 18 hours.
* Wagner has been described as a ruthless, racist, selfish, arrogant, frightening, and amoral man. To say the least, a bad egg.
* Besides himself, Wagner was passionate about Beethoven and his music.
* Wagner could barely play the piano, let alone any instrument, and was an "indifferent score reader".
