    Default Attention-seeking poll (A la carte poll #52)

    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.

    After the disappointing lack of interest in the two Psalms polls (voting remains open... part 1 and part 2), here's a rather more populist selection!

    Am not sure about Grisey, would have to check out, but voted ahead. As for Rodrigo, only the slow movement really catches on, IMO; there are other nice Spanish guitar concertos, such as Tomas Marco´s, for example.

    Beethoven, Debussy, Gershwin, Josquin, Rodrigo, Tchaikovsky.
    All the ones I know, I like - and I bet I'll like the others too. I am not 'too good' to enjoy populist pieces. My favourite play is Hamlet - my favourite novel Pride & Prejudice - my favourite opera is Carmen. Enough said!

    You could do an even more populist poll. Like really famous stuff even non-listeners of classical largely know.

    Yes, I'm toying with a "Classic FM Hall of Fame" poll but I worry the title might put people off!

    I voted for Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Debussy, Dvorak, Gershwin, Grisey, Josquin, Mozart, Rodrigo, Tchaikovsky, and Wagner.

    Oh, that's all of them.
    to drown,
    to sink unconscious --
    supreme bliss!

    Should I listen to all of them first? I haven't heard some of these.

    You can if you wish, but there's no need to: this is just a "snapshot" poll of where your tastes/knowledge are right now.

    Then select all of them!

    (Poll question: Which of these do you like?)

    Ahem, I meant select all the works you like, not select all 15 options!
