    Light Cavalry (Suppe)
    Ruslan and Lyudmila (Glinka)
    Clemenza di Tito (Mozart)

    Are there any explanations or references associated with this supercomputer? How can it account for taste?

    The machine learning algorithms were trained with tongue swabs from a representative cross-section of society. The organic molecules on the swabs were extracted and characterized by high resolution mass spectrometry.

    Haven't seen Peter Boyer's "Celebration Overture" mentioned here (or did I miss it on somebody's list?). It's one of my favorites since I first heard it several years back:



    Is it one of the "greatest" overtures? Well, such a notion is debatable. But it's a great listen.

    For you fans of the Barber and Bernstein overtures, this Boyer is a winner.

    Perhaps my single favorite overture remains the Egmont by LVB. That is quintessential Beethoven, sort of a summation of his musical art in capsulate form. I never tire hearing it.
