Well, I meant 20th+ Century composers, like my favorite Brits (Vaughn Williams, Elgar, Holst, Britten), the 12-toners like Schönberg and Schreker (in sense), Shostakovitch and others.

It's a matter of definition. I (for example) love Bach, but he is a Baroque composer and thus not a 'true' Classical composer of the Vienna period (which was truly short, as Beethoven - the last in line - was more of predecessor of the Romantics than anything else).

Currently listening to web radio… 'Gimme gimme gimme' by Abba (feel comforted, Corwin, I love Abba).
