Lucijan Marija Škerjanc (1900-1973) was a Slovene composer, music pedagogue, conductor, musician, and writer. As a musician educated in Ljubljana, Prague, Vienna, Paris and Basel, Škerjanc was open-minded in his views and multifaceted in his work. The style of Škerjanc's musical language is rooted in late romanticism; for a short while he was attracted to expressionism. A refined sense of the colouring of sound led him towards impressionism, and in relation to form he was a classicist. But in his creativity each of these elements received a somewhat personal shade or tone.
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations, and for vocal music such as the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach Revival he has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
Giovanni Bottesini (1821-1889), was an Italian Romantic composer, conductor, and a double bass virtuoso. Born in Crema, Lombardy, he was taught the rudiments of music by his father a renowned clarinettist and composer. He studied double bass in the Milan Conservatory with Luigi Rossi. After leaving Milan, he spent some time in America as a principal double bass in the Italian opera at Havana, where he later became director. Shortly before his death, he was appointed director of Parma Conservatory.
Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), was a German composer, pianist, and conductor of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg, Germany, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna. He composed for symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, piano, organ, voice and choirs. A virtuoso pianist, he premiered many of his own works. Many of his pieces have become staples of the modern concert repertoire. Brahms has been considered, by his contemporaries and by later writers, as both a traditionalist and an innovator. His music is firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters.
