Well, Mr. Russt, I say A! And as for the Duke of Wellington, I think that D is too kind a letter to donate.........How about a K? Or a Jason K? Stab in the dark?..........

Sounds like a question off who wants to be a millionaire! Actually your question is harder than it seems (apart from the last named person who doesn't belong in such illustrious company!) - I place composers in categories of greatness, and the first 3 gentlemen you mention all fit into my A category along with Handel, Schubert and Haydn. Beethoven overall is the greatest in my unbiased opinion and rates an A1.

I "like" Beethoven far and away over the others, whom I also "like". I think Beethoven was the grander composer as well, although having ridden it many times I do like Ellington's "I'll take the A train".

Regards to all

Ok Russt, Here's my reply,

I'm not entirely sure why you think it necessary to post a comparative survey
between 3 white European 18th/19th century
composers to one black American 20th century
composer in a Beethoven forum.

To me, it is borderline ludicrous, inviting
nationalistic disparity, and dissension
in a relatively quiet and harmonic site.

By and large, I tend to shy away from these
"list yr favorites" threads, because they
are a prolific nuisance throughout the web.

As a lover of both ClasSical music, Beethoven in particular, and America's own
"ClasSical Music" known as JAZZ, Duke Ellington being one of the most prominent figures of this country's improvisational genre, I fail to see any point in responding with a straight
choice to your survey.

My apologies to any regulars in this forum
whom my post may offend.
