    Hans Zimmer, Frank Zappa, Mark Morton, Ramin Djawadi off the top of my head.

    Soundtrackwise i'd have to say Clint Mansell, absolutely loved him in Pop will eat itself and he's also turned out to be a great composer. Also have to mention Nobuo Uematsu for the obvious reasons.

    For the classical composers my favourites would be Enrique Granados and Widor.

    Yuki Kajiura is good, but Yoko Kanno is better. Those two in general.
    As for movies I would have to say it was James Horner, but he became too predictable.
    Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard & John Sebastian for The Rock, James Horner for Braveheart.
    I digg Enya... real sentiment for Celtic music.
    Lately - Ludovico Einaudi (thanks to myC`- from mmo-champion IRC channel - thanks a lot)
    And so many more I can't remeber atm

    Danny Elfman is one of my favorite music-makers ever. Even most of the stuff he did with Oingo Boingo.

    Also... Gustov Holst is exceptional.. check out "The Planets Suite" particularly the "Mars" movement.

    For video games "Miki Higashino" has to be the best composer. The Suikoden soundtracks are just pure awesomeness!

    Going for soundtrack, then without doubt John Williams, but I am a fan of Chopin's piano stuff, and Wagner's epic feel, but then there are so many genres, I can't chose my favourite band either!

    Surprised nobody has said this yet, but I'm going Mozart. The man completely redefined the classical genre in his age and his music is not considered the archetype of classical music. Each piece was pure genius.
