Jacques Offenbach was a German-born French composer, cellist and impresario of the romantic period. He is remembered for his nearly 100 operettas of the 1850s–1870s and his uncompleted opera The Tales of Hoffmann. He was a powerful influence on later composers of the operetta genre, particularly Johann Strauss, Jr. and Arthur Sullivan.

Rachmaninoff...one of my favorite classical composers. Love his preludes...especially the dark, brooding ones, like the one in C Sharp Minor.

Pergolesi - Giovanni Battista Draghi, llamado Pergolesi1 (Iesi, 4 de enero de 1710 - Pozzuoli, 16 de marzo de 1736) fue un compositor, violinista y organista italiano del período Barroco. Su obra influyó profundamente en la escuela napolitana, y sirvió como prototipo por antonomasia de la ópera italiana. Confrontaría el gusto estético derivado de la tradición de la ópera seria francesa y el de los partidarios de la nueva ópera bufa italiana. -
