    Default Nereffid's A la carte poll #36: Champions' edition, 3 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 2 of the "Champions' edition".
    For the full list, see the blog entry linked in my signature below.

    As with the previous 2 polls, all the works here have appeared in the top 5 spots of one or other of the TC Recommended Lists.

    I decided I didn't want to vote for every choice in this series after clicking all options on the last two, and was dismayed until the last option, which I can at least say for certain I don't love. Used to be a big fan of the 5th, but once one's heard the 4th, 8th, 13-15th and some fine concertos, that symphony is such a snoozer!

    Sorry, but I had to select all of them, even the Shostakovich 5.

    The Boulez is top notch for me.

    I thought you liked works which have been deemed 'great.' Why ever not this core work of the 20th century?

    I voted for every single piece. There is nothing here I don't love to bits.

    I voted for all options except Boulez, Debussy's Cello Sonatas, Dvorak and Schubert.

    Shostabear's Fifth is only disliked by Satanists and Modernist-Contemporary hipsters who fawn over their headmaster, Boulez.

    I don't fawn over Boulez, but I'm guessing people who don't like Le Marteau sans maître haven't really experienced it. I would have been counted among them a couple of years ago. No problem though. Both Boulez and pretty triads will be around regardless.

    Well, I think pretty triads may outlive Boulez....he's getting a bit old. But his music, his recordings as a conductor and his immature exclamations on everything not serial will immortalise him!

    It does have one great movement (the third), but a single movement does not a masterpiece make. As it happened, I had just listened through Shostakovich's Fifth yesterday before voting, and I considered placing a vote for it before coming down against.

    Something tells me that our friendship will lead me to adding Boulez's name to my mesmerizing, no-nonsense-this-be-da-real-deal conductors and composers list.

    I might give his Bruckner and a Mahler try soon.

    Hopefully, you won't force me to write at the start of every post: "The views expressed in the post are those of the authors - as all remarks in/about music are - and he is musically retarded but has a heart of gold and is a Olympic runner-up."
