Teacher, ethnomusicologist, and pianist, Béla Bartók (1881-1945) has come to be regarded as one of the most influential modern composers of the twentieth century, along with Claude Debussy, Arnold Schoenberg, Igor Stravinsky, Paul Hindemith, and Anton Webern.

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.
