Now you can vote for each of 20 composers named at least once in the Overrated-Underrated thread, listed in no particular order. This way we can see how many of our fellow YC members have similar opinions on said composers.

 

Please note that I would have liked to list every single composer named in that thread, but that would have been too many questions.

 

The options are very simple: tell us if said composer is, in your view, overrated, underrated, neither, or if you've never heard of him at all.

 

Enjoy the ride!

Vivaldi and Adams were the only two I voted overrated. Adams probably not as much, but for me personally, Vivaldi's music just blurs together too much for him to be pleasurable to me. It just sounds like cliché italian baroque music to me and that gets old after a while. 

 

I definitely think that Charles-Valentin Alkan is one of the most underrated composers I've ever come across though. I can't express how underrated I feel he is. Same with Schnittke.
