5 Underrated Composers Every Gentleman Should Listen To

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start, I would like to apologize for not posting anything for so long. I’ve been so incredibly busy since I just started a teaching credential program that has been eating up almost all of my time. While I will continue to be even more busy with it in the coming months, I’ll try to continue to keep posting as often as I can. Moving on from that, in today’s article, I’m going to list five (5) composers that every gentleman should listen to at least once, as well as some of my favorite pieces that they have written. I’m going to avoid listing those select composers that everyone has heard of or whose peices are more popular in the mainstream, such as Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, or Sousa. I’m going to try to list certain composers that not as many people have heard of. On top of that, I’m going to try to list composers from various eras of music instead of having all of them come from one era. So without any further delay, let’s get started!

“Watching the Mountains Grow”

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start off, I want to start off with a sincere apology for not having up any articles in he last few weeks. I have been incredibly busy with work, applying for teaching credential programs, and trying to maintain a healthy relationship with my family and girlfriend, plus I’ve also had a hard time trying to find any inspiration to write for the blog. Lo and behold, that inspiration has come back and I should be back to my weekly posting schedule. Now to the point of today’s article, “I’m just watching the mountains grow” is something that my grandpa would say whenever he would sit out in the backyard at his vacation house and just gaze at the Eastern Sierra Mountains in all their majesty. It’s a phrase that has puzzled my family for years, but thanks to some inspiration from my sister and my grandmother, I now understand the meaning of what that phrase says. Today, I hope to share that meaning and wisdom with you. So before this article turns into a full-length novel, let’s get started!
