notes about this chart


This chart is restricted to composers, writers, painters, etc., i.e., the original creators of the art. It does not include performers, conductors, improvisors, and generally those who did not notate their music, with few exceptions. Inevitably, a personal filter is involved in the selection. There is no claim for objectivity. Innovation is an important consideration.
