Art is the only thing you cannot punch a button for. You must do it the old-fashioned way. Stay up and really burn the midnight oil. There are no compromises. - Leonytne Price

5. Handel
Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, and Debussy!

Ok. Here I go, although I would have done a top ten, if possible.
1. Monteverdi.
2. Palestrina
3. J.S. Bach
4. Vivaldi
5. Mozart.
But then, and not inferior to the others: Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Faure', Mahler, Richard Strauss, Wagner (even though he was one big....better not say), Prokofiev, Debussy, Ravel, Mussorgsky, Puccini, Verdi....pretty extensive. Fact is, in one way or another abernector, I appreciate them all. I mean, I can go even further back and name Giovanni and Andrea Gabrieli, Orlando di Lasso, Don Gesualdo di Venosa, and oh boy, the list doesn't end.
Cogito, ergo sum...

Here was my top 5 temporary list:

In no order.....

 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!
