As for living composers, I am fond of Arvo Pärt.

Haydn is a recent infatuation of mine. I almost like it that everyone under-rates him. I can thus discover many hidden, overlooked treasures in the symphonies, piano sonatas, string quartets, and piano trios. His work is rather subtle--no wild swings of emotional range (therefore little popularity).
