    Isn’t there a thread about this? (I don’t remember the name I just know that I posted on it some)

    I have a cousin chaim fogelman. He is nine though so I don’t think you are referring to him …

    Dovid Hamelech?

    Considering that I find it highly doubtful that you’ve ever heard a composition by Dovid HaMelech, how can you say that he’s your favorite composer?

    Wolf, you serious???? How bout SEFER TEHILIM??? I also think he was the greatest composer.

    Oh, forgot to mention Abie Rottenberg- my favorite!! (After Yossi that is.)

    Correct me if I’m wrong (it certainly is possible), but doesn’t the composition refer to the music, not the lyrics?

    If so, then I doubt she (or anyone else currently alive) has heard a Dovid HaMelech composition. He may be your favorite lyricist, but that’s not the same thing as saying that he’s your favorite composer.

    Weird Al is a favorite of mine but on a Jewish note (pun intended) I love Aaron Rozel, and Baruch Levine.

    Wolf,

    You’ve got to figure that since Dovid Hamelech wrote the lyrics, he must have written the trop also!

    A. I don’t have to figure that at all.

    B. Even if so, have you ever heard anyone lain Tehillim with the trup?

    C. Even if you did, how do you know the tune used for the trup then is the same as is used today?

    WolfishMusings~ I stand corrected: ‘Weird Al’ is a satirist, and parodist/lyricist.

    Cb1: do you know hillel kapnick?

    My favorite composers:

    My father

    Shlomo carlebach

    Country yossi (my father has records-yes you heard me right-records and a record player with country yossi, shlomo carlebach, torah avenue, etc)

    hillel kapnick

    Dovid insel

    Yoel bar kochva (yes that is his real name)

    Shmuely edelman

    Chaim felder

    Myself (though I prefer singing to composing)

    I hope I am not forgetting anyone

    Oh! And the regulars (MBD, avrohom fried, yossi green, eli gerstner, baruch levine, etc)

    My list of singers however would be different (not necessarily entirely but still)

    😀 Zuberman! 😀

    Dovid Hamelech’s been getting the credit all these years… Mizmor L’Dovid… and if he didn’t write it – who did?

    You missed my point. I wasn’t questioning the authorship of Tehillim to Dovid. I was questioning whether or not you ever heard any of his compositions (by which, I mean the music).

    You may say that Dovid is your favorite lyricist, but I don’t think you can say he’s your favorite composer as I don’t believe you’ve ever heard any of his compositions.

    A. I don’t have to figure that at all.

    Then who do you think did? (typical Jewish response – a question with a question)

    B. Even if so, have you ever heard anyone lain Tehillim with the trup?

    No

    C. Even if you did, how do you know the tune used for the trup then is the same as is used today?

    N/A

    My point was that he probably did write music, not that I ever heard it, although I can only imagine that it was spectacular.

    I think wanderingchana makes a great point (not sure if you caught it)- why would it be called Mizmor if it was not a musical composition? Many kapitlach begin “Mizmor” or “Lam’natzeiach” (to the conductor). Then again, maybe the m’natzeiach wrote the trup?

    I didn’t dispute that either. I was only disputing Chana’s assertion that Dovid is her favorite composer on the grounds that she never heard any of his compositions.

    Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, Avrohom Fried and Yossi Green.

    I think the trop for krias hatorah was written by Hashem,and he is everyone’s favorite,right?

    Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Franck, Liszt, Khachaturian, Shostakovich, Gershwin, Rachmaninoff, Faure, Barber and Carl Ditter von Dittersdorf but mainly because I like his name.

    Yitzy Waldner is definitely the best composer in the past decade. He has the most hit songs!!!

    I can’t beleive no one mentioned Yitzy Bald.

    Plenty of his songs became hits..

    Tatte- was played by the Siyum haShas- not so simple..

    Sameach among many others!

    I don’t think anyone’s yet mentioned the composer whose songs are probably sung, in an atmosphere of kedusha, more than any other living (for many more years, be”H!) composer; Ben Zion Shenker.

    I believe that 99.999% of composers and singers are mega mega over rated. When you hear them in person, your like totally about to doze off. But when they put out a CD it sounds cool. Its a whole bunch of digital junk on very average voices.

    dvorak, for his ‘new world symphony”, beethoven, for his fifth and the egmont overture, mendelssohn for his violin concerto, vivaldi for his four seasons and rimsky korsakov for his scheherezade.

    “A. I don’t have to figure that at all.”

    Yes you do. The trup that we have is from har saini. Its kefira to say not otherwise your saying that were not laining the Torah teh right way. So when Dovid wrote tehilim he also wrote it with the trup.

    mosherose- can you give me the source for what you said about trope?? and how do you explain the litvishe troep, the polish trope, the sefardi trope, the “yekke’ trope?

    lastly- “kefirah” ??? aren’t you over the top???? kefirah in what??

    #900375

    R’ Chaim Banet

    Moishe Goldman A”H

    Boruch Levine

    (MBD and Avrohom Fried are not composers. Lipa Schmeltzer might be as I know he has written material for his own albums and MBD [A Shabbos in Mezhbuzh, Ahavas Yisruel] but somehow I think he writes only words, not music).

    So… I decided to find the oldest (i.e. longest without an update) thread I could that I was interested in. And this won! Yay! And in answer: Mahler, Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Mendelson, Elgar. So done. And now this thread can officially die.
