    My Top Five : Beethoven,Debussy,Bach,Brahms, and Dvorak. I actually have an equal love for all of them. I give the slight edge to Beethoven.

    Satie was on my short list, as were Debussy and Ravel (and Varèse, and...). Ives just edged them, but on a different day it'd be a different list.

    Not in my top five, both owing to quality and consistency, but Dvorak is nevertheless one of my guilty pleasures. In freshman year of college, we used to start the weekend with his viola quintet Op 97 (the RCA Guarneri Quartet recording) .

    And if you ever want a short demonstration of why Heifetz was a phenomenal violinist, check out the recording of the Op 65 Piano Trio he did with Pennario and Piatagorsky.

    No order.

    Ravel
    Stravinsky
    Copland
    Bach
    Handel

    Bleh I want to put Mozart and Haydn in there, but that's more than 5.
