    Default Second Viennese School (A la carte poll #48)

    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. For the full list, see the blog entry linked in my signature below.

    A mostly random selection of works. I was in no way tempted to sneak some Xenakis in there.

    All three composers have done respectably in previous polls, so there's no question that "we" like them. But in a poll on their own, I'm curious as to whether the "I don't know" and "I don't like" results will be any higher than usual.

    The four pieces above by Berg, I think the greatest SVS composer.

    A sincere vote for absolutely every single piece here.

    Might as well just quote this post that echoes my own voting.

    I have to admit I'm not familiar with much here. I only voted for the Berg violin concerto. I really like this piece now, but it took some time and the performance of Isabelle Faust. I also have a recording of Gidon Kremer, but it doesn't do much for me. It wasn't until I heard Isabelle Faust that I really started to like this piece.

    I've heard some of the other pieces on the list, but I'm not familiar enough with them to vote.

    As someone who knows all of these pieces well enough to recognize them blind, let me assure you that they are all worth the time getting to know.

    I've gotten mildly obsessed with Webern's Symphony lately. It's probably my favorite on this list at the moment.

    Twenty years ago I would have only voted for Berg Violin Concerto myself. It has taken me a lifetime to acquire a taste for the rest of the works on the list.

    Note: I voted for all of that above.

    Naturally I could only vote for those I have heard! Disappointed you omitted Xenakis.
    Webern still my favoured one.

    All the Schoenberg and Webern. Only one Berg. I need to work on that.

    I had no hesitation in voting for all these except for these two Schoenberg pieces

    Schoenberg: Friede auf Erden, op.13
    Schoenberg: String trio, op.45
    which I have the misfortune not yet to know.

    Every piece I love there. No Brian either.

    I find it shocking people don't know ANY of these works! Some of them are the most pivotal compositions of the last century, not to mention masterworks in their own right.
