Giant Composers

Jul 10, 2014

Huge choirs, massive orchestras, and great music that spans the heights of human emotion seem larger than life. But actually how tall were the great composers themselves?

Grieg seems to be the shortest at 5’1”; Beethoven was 5’2”, while Chopin was 5’5”; Liszt was 6’. The tallest seems to be Rachmaninoff at 6’6”. 

But they are all giants to me.
