In 1984, Yugoslavia issued this stamp, for the centenary of the birth of Serbian composer/conductor/teacher Miloje Milojevic (1884-1946). Drawing influence from Richard Strauss and French Impressionists, and, late in his life, injecting folk music into the mix, he is most prominently known for his art songs and piano pieces.

This is Venezuela, Scott Nr 1390a, from 1987, honoring the centenary of the birth of Vicente Emilio Sojo, one of the major forces behind modern venezuelan music, and founder of the Venezuela Symphony Orchestra.
One more from the former Yugoslavia: Marij Kogoj (1892–1956) was a Slovenian composer. He studied under Arnold Schoenberg and Franz Schreker, and is mainly known for his vocal works, including his most popular work, the opera, “Črne maske” (“Black Masks”). His career was cut short, at the age of 40, when, diagnosed with schizophrenia, he was institutionalized, where he remained until his death, 20 years later. This stamp, issued by Slovenia, in 1992, marks the centenary of his birth.
