I've recently gotten into the genre, having been enthralled by Tchaikovsky's 'Symphony No. 6'.

Any other notable composers which I should listen to? I've already taken a liking to Chopin and Dvořák, amongst others.

So it sounds like you like Romantic composers

I'd recommend Johannes Brahms, Franz Litsz, Richard Wagner, Robert Schumann, Camille Saint-Saens and Edvard Grieg.

I've already listened to and enjoyed some of Litsz' works. Thank you for the rest though .

You said you're into Dvorak, so you should definitely listen to this:


Enjoy!
