Erik Satie/Ерик Сати (1866. — 1925) је био француски композитор, пијанист и писац. Сати се као композитор појавио 1887. Себе је прозвао гимнопедист, а нешто касније (1888) написаће своје најпознатије дело „гимнопедес“ (Gymnopédies, три композиције за клавир). Сати је писао за бројне часописе, од дадаистичког магазина 391 до америчког Ванити фера. Његов рад је био претеча каснијих музичких праваца минимализма, музике која се понавља и позоришта апсурда.

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869) was a Romantic and passionate composer, who frequently found inspiration from works of literature and the theatre.

Gustav Holst (1874 - 1934) is recognized today as the composer of "The Planets," which remains wildly popular, but for little else except perhaps his "St. Paul Suite." However, Holst was the creator of operas, chamber, vocal, and orchestral music of many different styles, based on subjects as varied as folk songs, Tudor music, Sanskrit literature, astrology, and contemporary poetry.
