    I've updated the list of removed works to include December 2011--you can see it here:

    Alternative Classical Music Project--removed works

    So now you only need to list removed works beginning from today, January 1st, 2012.

    (I have one or two changes in mind for the New Year )

    After Klavierspieler:

    Removing: Romeo et Juliette by Berlioz, because I much prefer Harold in Italy, and it's on the list now.

    Adding: Spiegel im Spiegel, a minimalist piece by the Estonian composer Arvo Part. The choice of stringed instrument is optional--here it is for cello and piano:



    The piece may not be to everyone's taste, but personally I find it hypnotic and beautiful.

    And so the new list is:

    Aho: Symphony No.9
    Bach: Goldberg Variations
    Barber: Violin Concerto, Op.14
    Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 30
    Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"

    Berlioz: Harold en Italie (Harold in Italy)
    Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1
    Charpentier: Te Deum
    Falla: El Amor Brujo
    Franck: Piano Concerto No.2

    Henze: Symphony no 7
    Janácek: Sinfonietta
    Mathieu: Piano Concerto No.3 "Concerto de Québec"
    Mozart: Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter"
    Nielsen: Alladin suite

    Part: Spiegel im Spiegel
    Prokofiev: Symphony No.7
    Purcell: 'Come, Ye Sons of Art'
    Respighi: Pines of Rome
    Schnittke: Cello Concerto No. 1

    Schubert: Sonata for Arpeggione
    Schumann, C.: Piano Concerto
    Schumann, R.: Piano Quintet
    Shostakovich: Violin concerto no 2
    Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

    Removed works:

    Jan. 1, 2012 Berlioz: Romeo et Juliette

    I think a good idea for this project is to put works that you think deserve more attention rather than just the works you consider the best. Not much point in showcasing pieces that already get lots of coverage.

    Let's try a new Schubert piece.

    Removed: Schubert: Sonata for Arpeggione

    Added: Schubert: Piano Sonata No.13 "Little A Major"



    Aho: Symphony No.9
    Bach: Goldberg Variations
    Barber: Violin Concerto, Op.14
    Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 30
    Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"

    Berlioz: Harold en Italie (Harold in Italy)
    Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1
    Charpentier: Te Deum
    Falla: El Amor Brujo
    Franck: Piano Concerto No.2

    Henze: Symphony no 7
    Janácek: Sinfonietta
    Mathieu: Piano Concerto No.3 "Concerto de Québec"
    Mozart: Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter"
    Nielsen: Alladin suite

    Part: Spiegel im Spiegel
    Prokofiev: Symphony No.7
    Purcell: 'Come, Ye Sons of Art'
    Respighi: Pines of Rome
    Schnittke: Cello Concerto No. 1

    Schubert: Piano Sonata No.13 "Little A Major"
    Schumann, C.: Piano Concerto
    Schumann, R.: Piano Quintet
    Shostakovich: Violin concerto no 2
    Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

    Removed works:

    I agree, with you,pjang23! I think that was my idea from the beginning. I wanted to highlight works that deserved some attention for a periode.

    Back in:

    Removing: Aho Symphony #9 - I've listened to this thing a dozen times or more since it is the first album in my collection alphabetically. It's good for what it is, but not my favorite.

    Adding: Hmm - who deserves more recognition? How about Lyapunov Piano Concerto #2. Really brilliant but perhaps unfairly overshadowed by the contemporaneous Rachmaninov PC#3. His Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes is even better, but I thought maybe too obscure.

    Updated List:

    Bach: Goldberg Variations
    Barber: Violin Concerto, Op.14
    Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 30
    Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"

    Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1
    Charpentier: Te Deum
    Franck: Piano Concerto No.2
    Henze: Symphony no 7
    Janácek: Sinfonietta

    Lyapunov: Piano Concerto #2
    Mathieu: Piano Concerto No.3 "Concerto de Québec"
    Mozart: Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter"
    Nielsen: Alladin suite
    Part: Spiegel im Spiegel

    Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No.1 in Db, Op.10
    Prokofiev: Symphony No.7
    Purcell: 'Come, Ye Sons of Art'
    Respighi: Pines of Rome
    Schnittke: Cello Concerto No. 1

    ^Thank you. Bruch's first violin concerto makes me feel stressed whenever I hear it.
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    Sorry Oskaar, I forgot!

    CoAG - that's terrible. If Bruch stresses you, Korngold might drive you to suicide.

    Actually I haven't heard much Korngold. I've got a recording with some of his songs but that's about it,
