161-162. Two more ODWGs

My brother, a pianist, once referred to the sad fact that most people today think of the great European composers as "a bunch of old, dead white guys."  It's a shame...

I made this one's stresses fall in odd places -- a tribute to ol' Béla!
An avant garde writer named Bartók
Used harmonies many find are shock
Ingly painful to like,
With accents that do spike
At odd times, very much like a car knock.

What say I of Johannes Brahms?
That his symphonic style set off bahms?
He was awfully adventury
For late 19th century
But did write that lullaby for mahms...
