Composer Cagematch!: Vivaldi vs. Schubert

Okay, I can live with this.

The victor of the last match, I mean. I can accept that you like Respighi more than Delibes. I’m a little hurt on Leo’s behalf, what with the proper spanking you gave him, but sure, I can see where you’re coming from. It’s okay. Also, continuing my theme of looking at composers and seeing modern celebrities, is anyone else getting Lewis Black off of Respighi?

Now, as far as today’s match goes, I’m not entirely sure it’s a fair one, given the snobbery one of these guys sometimes endures (I’m not going to say who in case there are innocents whose votes may otherwise be corrupted). But these are two of the few true heavyweights who didn’t make it into the inaugural Composer Cagematch! session, so…

In this corner, stop me if you’ve heard this one: a priest walks into a school for orphaned girls… It’s


And in this corner, he’s a lieder leader! It’s


Both prolific. Both beloved. Vivaldi pretty much raised you, right? He’s the savior of Suzuki. And then Schubert’s chamber works taught you how to love. This one’s rough.

About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.

  1. Schubert has the great advantage of his music not generally not being used while you’re being kept on hold.
