    Default Nereffid's A la carte poll #40: Grawemeyer Award (2 of 2)

    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; have you participated in the 1740-2 poll yet?
    For the full list, see the blog entry linked in my signature below.

    These are the works that have won the Grawemeyer Award since 2000. See yesterday's poll for the others.

    As I said yesterday, an "I don't know" vote is especially useful when the works on the poll aren't the "obvious" pieces from your Beethovens and Sibeliuses. Paradoxically, I encourage the participation of those with no interest in the topic!

    ..apart from the Zivkovic work I believe I have heard all of these works, don't have any exhilarating memories of for Chin, Salonen or Lieberson...

    All of them. Except I haven't heard the Rihm but I pulled an Albert and voted anyway because after so many Rihm albums, there's just no way it sucks.

    I could only vote for four pieces, Saariaho whom I've recently discovered and found amazing, Chin, Dean and Salonen. I'd probably like the Kurtag and many of the others if I were familiar.

    The only one I have heard is Chin's and I generally find her works appealing.

    I recognize the Saariaho, Chin, and Salonen and like them all. Among these, Chin's VC is the standout for me.

    Have actually only heard some of Saariaho´s work, but would be interested in Kurtag, Lieberson (a good 1st piano concerto by him), Höller, and Chin.

    What these Nereffid's A la carte polls show me is just what a vast amount of classical music is out there that I have never experienced, or even ever heard of.

    This is the first time I have not heard a single work in one of your polls. But I do support and generally like a good chunk of the composers on the list.
