Hi Mr Tommasini,
I read about you in the newspaper. Like you, I adore music. So I've written two lists: The 10 Greatist Composers and: The Ones I Like Best. Lets start with 10 Greatist:
1, 2, 3: You're right about those: Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart.
4: I disagree about that; I'd go with Haydn. Haydn is as good as Mozart, but goes with 4.
4A: If I hurt your feelings I'm sorry.
5: This one my dad chose for me: Schubert. I gotta say, I'll have to agree. I don't know why, but I'll do it.
6: This is hard. I'll go with Brahms. He was supposed to be lower but when I learned he burned his music...
7: Tchaikovsky. Most definaly. He was an awesome composer.
8, 9: Chopin is 8. Schumanns nine.
TURN OVER FOR THE TEN COMPOSERS I LIKE BEST
1. Even though my favorite piece is Tchaikovskys Violin Concerto, someone else is beside him: Schumann. Schumann wins.
1A: Uh-huh you get the picture
7: You won't believe it: Paganini
Well, that's about it.
P.S. I go to Lucy Moses School. I'm 8 years old.
