    Modern for me. Although I enjoy music from all periods.

    4/4, you may want to add Renaissance to your poll... there may be some pre-Baroque lovers here!

    Well, then we might as well have Ancient music on the list too; Greek stasimon's might have a cult following. Honestly, I think the eras given in the poll are what generally constitute "Classical Music."

    Have all the regular posters voted on this poll yet? There must be a few who haven't. The results so far look interesting.

    Good idea, 4/4, for raising this poll.

    Very surprising that so far no one has voted classical. What with Beethoven and Mozart being from that era.

    I voted for Romantic on the assumption that Beethoven and Schubert are treated as belonging to that school.

    I would consider Beethoven very much a part of the late-classical period... although an argument can definitely be made the other way.

    You're right but all I am doing is stating my assumptions that I am treating Beethoven and Schubert as if they are in the Romantic era because you can't vote for two selections. If I thought that these two composers were more Classical than Romantic then I would have been completely stuck, not knowing what to do. Strictly they are probably "Late Classical Transition Romantics".

    The results so far (14 votes) are very interesting in that no-one has voted for Classical. This is obviously mainly Mozart and Haydn, and I must say that I am a bit surprised about this. Maybe the "Classical" period fans have not yet woken up to this thread. And there is only one vote for Baroque which too is fascinating, and 3 for Modern.

    That's about as good a term as any. The boundary between classical and romantic is probably the blurriest in all of music. Much more definite is the boundary between baroque and classical, which was a complete aesthetic overhaul.

    I did. I enjoy the music of Vaughan Williams, Ravel and various other early 20th century composers (none of the atonal stuff though).
