List of Composer    : Vote for your favorites.

A composer (Latin compōnō; literally "one who puts together") is a person who creates or writes music, which can be vocal music (for a singer or choir), instrumental music (e.g., for solo piano, string quartet, wind quintet or orchestra) or music which combines both instruments and voices (e.g., opera or art song, which is a singer accompanied by a pianist). The core meaning of the term refers to individuals who have contributed to the tradition of Western classical music through creation of works expressed in written musical notation (e.g., sheet music scores).

Many composers are also skilled performers, either as singers, instrumentalists, or conductors. Examples of composers who are also well known for their ability as performers include J. S. Bach (an organist), Mozart (violin and piano), and Beethoven, Liszt and Chopin (all skilled pianists). Involvement in practical music-making provides a composer with insight into the diverse musical elements needed for a good piece of music and it can give them practical guidance with their compositions.

In broader usage, "composer" can also refer to people who write for musical theatre; those who create music, using written notation or not, in other musical traditions (e.g., Blues, folk, and popular music) are generally called songwriters.
