    Default Nereffid's A la carte poll #4

    Part of a continuing series of polls, which simply asks:
    Which of these works do you like?

    The only connections between the selections are that they're all in my music library, and they were all composed about the same time.

    Vote for as many as you like.
    Options are available for voters who don't know any of the works, and those who know some but don't like any of them.

    You can still vote in the previous polls: 1, 2, 3.

    Bax, Sibelius, Janacek's Sinfonietta, and Warlock. Glad to see Peter Warlock here with the Capriol Suite. I like his song cycle Curlew even better by the way.

    I like the Gerhswin preludes too, though they aren´t a big deal, but somehow it wasn´t registered in the poll. Bax´s 2nd isn´t in my immediate memory, but I might listen to it soon :-). Should I pick only three, a bit above the rest, it would be the Bartok Concerto, Sinfonietta and Tapiola.

    Sibelius, Bartók, Mosolov and...Turina. Even though I am a guitarist I haven't played the Turina and before this year I was not a huge fan of the work. However when I looked at the music again recently I discovered what a cool piece it is!

    Again, a not surprising result - and it's reassuring that (so far) no one has voted in the dont' know/don't like categories

    Façade by a mile, Walton's best work! Then Mosolov, Sibelius and Janacek's Sinfonietta!

    Since it appears to be multiple choice, I voted the Sinfonietta, always an engaging work. Or if that's too overplayed, the Warlock Capriole suite is great fun.

    Try Anda's or Grimaud's recording of Bartok Piano Con. number 1.

    I think Grimaud recorded the 3rd, the Boulez DG CD of the 3 has Zimerman in the 1st.

    So far, Neriffid, my answer to all your polls would be "all."
