    Default Nereffid's A la carte poll #35: Champions' edition, 2 of 4

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

    My goal is to build a general picture of the musical interests on TC.

    Please vote for *all* of the pieces 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. Even "I don't know any" is an interesting and welcome piece of information.


    Thank you to everyone who's voted so far!
    You can still vote in all the previous polls; the most recent is part 1 of the "Champions' edition".
    For the full list, see the blog entry linked in my signature below.

    As with yesterday's poll, all of these works have appeared in the top 5 of one or other of the TC Recommended Lists.

    Actually Wagner's complete Ring was chosen for the opera list, but I've already used Götterdämmerung in a poll so I've just picked one of the others.

    All of them, except Handel. The Mendelssohn, Schubert, Strauss and Wagner works listed are absolute all-time faves for me.

    Four Last Songs by R. Strauss... a wonderful vocal showcase easily.

    Wow some people are really missing out on one of the greatest operas ever by one of the greatest composers ever, Giulio Cesare by Handel. Only 7 out of 32 people like it.

    Dang, I missed seeing Four Last Songs! Well, I voted for six items and it would have been seven.

    I voted for all the options (again) in this one because I'm neither a square nor a spare.

    I woulda figured you for a Copland fan, Art. It wouldn't seem to get much more up your alley than populism. Gotta say I'm puzzled.

    Two things these polls have revealed to me:
    1. Opera isn't especially popular among voters.
    2. Baroque music (with some particular exceptions) isn't especially popular among voters.

    Put 'em together and...

    Bach's B Minor Mass.
    Beethoven's Quartet Op. 132
    Copland's Clarinet Concerto
    Haydn's Trumpet Concerto
    Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto
    Schubert's Winterreise
    Strauss' Four Last Songs
    Wagner's Valkeries.

    This is an unusual list, because as a rule, I don't like concertos, I don't pay much attention to Schubert's songs, and I don't like much opera and don't bother much with Wagner. I guess it shows I can be flexible.
