Santa Claus brought our son Manuel a book (with CD) “My first Classical Music Book” (authors Genevieve Helsby, Jason Chapman), and he’s been reading and listening to it with great interest. So we asked him, “Who’s your favourite composer?”
In a heartbeat, he answered “John Adams!”
“Why” we asked.

“Because he’s still alive!” Manuel answered triumphantly.

Take that, all you dead suckers Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky!
