No, but i'll suggest Claude Debussey as among the runners up.

Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Greatest Musician is a dead end arguement, someone else is always better at something, it's too broad of a feild for anyone to ever be the best.

Coltrane's damned good though.

I waffled for years between Mozart & Bach,
then decided Bach was too pretentious to
truly be the "Greatest" - Mozart was such
an extraordinary, unexpected talent -

now, I love Willie Nelson to no end -
if I had to choose a world without either
willie or bourbon, I'd have to drink gin ...

but Willie's importance/contributions in the long-term history
of music pales in comparison to the likes of Coltrane & Mozart

SandRider, you should take the God Emperor's word for it that Bach was the ultimate supreme and that Mozart was a super-talented hack.

Hah! The funny thing is I already believed this before I ever read the book and was happy that someone agreed with me. Mozart has been super-trendy in the music and academic words lately so it's pretty uncommon to slam him at all. I think, though, that upon extremely close inspection you might come to realize that Bach's music is in a way totally humble and devotional. Pretentiousness requires others to flatter you, I think, whereas I suspect Bach sat in the basement writing all day and had the music played in Church for the most part, so he wasn't exactly some kind of superstar trying to impress anyone.
