Explanation

The first part of the sentence asserts that the composer has never sought popularity, while the second part of the sentence explains what the composer’s style does instead. The blank, then, must be filled with a verb that is roughly synonymous with “court popularity.” The choice that best does this is “woo;” its correctness is confirmed by the fact that it also forms the best contrast with “defy.” None of the other choices indicates the desire to be liked by or to win over audiences that a synonym of “court popularity” would require. Thus the correct answer is woo (Choice C).
