Who is the greatest musician of all time?
And why do you think they were the greatest?
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He was correcting his music tutors at 5 and was right! He never corrected a manuscript and never erased either and yet they are all note perfect!
Probably Mozart. He did so much and inspired so many. Of course, it has to be him.
1. Johan Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750)
2. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791)
3. Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827)
Bach was a predecessor of Mozart, and coeval of Mozart's teacher Salarieri. Bach's music is more balanced than Mozart's, and more 'mathematical' than Mozart's.
Bach is perfect. There are many musicians who can perform Mozart, but just a few who were able to perform 'The Goldberg Variations' of Bach.
Music is also a matter of taste, but most music connoisseurs agree with the above ranking.

What are your favorite pieces of music by Mozart?For me: Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Symphony 40-41, Piano Concerto 20-27, Piano Sonata in F k.332, and the Requiem. That's just trying to narrow it down, there are too many.

Who is the greatest musician alive today?This is bound to divide opinion as there are so many musical styles around, i'm a real gutar fan so my vote goes for Eric Clapton who has continued to create incredible music consistently for the last 40 years or so. Who do you think?

By far, Bach.

The death of Whitney Houston actually spurred this question. I personally feel she is a great singer but don't know if you share the same opinion. Who do you think should be the contemporary greatest female musician?
