More Composers

In an attempt to broaden the site, I’ve gone searching for those ‘well known’ composers who until now haven’t been on the site. It was a quick and superficial effort to find either their better known works, or those that I felt had a great appeal. Apologies to anyone who knows and appreciates these composers … if my choices were poor ones!

Under the composer name are links to Biographies.

Cesar Franck (10 December 1822 – 8 November 1890)

Wanting to include composers who weren’t already on the site, or whose music I didn’t know; or those I thought I didn’t like … I searched for something by Franck that I (and you?) could enjoy. I couldn’t find anything! I suppose I must really dislike his music. So I just picked a piece at random to illustrate why (so far)  I don’t like his music.

The first 3 minutes of Les Dijnns (there is a slight (5 second) delay on this one playing)
