Joseph Maurice Ravel (7 March 1875 – 28 December 1937) was a French composer, pianist and conductor. He is often associated with impressionism along with his elder contemporary Claude Debussy, although both composers rejected the term. In the 1920s and 1930s Ravel was internationally regarded as France’s greatest living composer.
Dmitri Dmitriyevich Shostakovich (25 September 1906 – 9 August 1975) was a Russian componer and pianist. He is regarded as one of the major composers of the 20th century.
Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky (17 June 1882 – 6 April 1971) was a Russian-born composer, pianist, and conductor. Stravinsky’s compositional career was notable for its stylistic diversity.
Jacques Hétu (August 8, 1938 – February 9, 2010) was born in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. He was nominated for a 1989 Juno Award in the Best Classical Composition category. In 1989, he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and in 2001 he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.
