Top Classical Music Composers

When I first started to make a list of of my favorite classical composers, the idea was to limit it to the Top Ten.  I found that to be impossible so I expanded it to 25.  Even then, several of my favorites did not make the list.  Here is my selection of the top twenty-five classical composers and the first five are listed in order.  After that, the recommendations are random.
