Éric Alfred Leslie Satie (1866–1925), was a French composer and pianist. He was a colourful figure in the early 20th century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd. An eccentric, he was introduced as a "gymnopedist" in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnopédies.

Aaron Copland (1900–1990), was an American composer, composition teacher, writer and conductor. Instrumental in forging a distinctly American style of composition, is best known to the public for the works he wrote in a deliberately accessible style often referred to as Populist. The open, slowly changing harmonies of many of his works are archetypical of what many people consider to be the sound of American music, evoking the vast American landscape and pioneer spirit.
