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!
