My favs are the composers of tone poems....even tho I mention particular pieces go for the name, see what they wrote ...in all cases read the story the music tells then listen. Some stories are obvious just in the title of what they wrote.:

Richard Strauss (fuggidabout Johann) Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks

Mussorgsky, Pictures at an Exhibition (he was a banker during the day)

Respighi

Ravel

Debussy

...and many other tone poem composers
