    I love all three. I place Stravinsky and Schoenberg in a league slightly above Prokofiev.

    I put all three level on points but narrowly separated by goal difference.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I think this was the first poll of your's that I voted in, FWIW, to say nothing about interest. I felt that passionate about my answer.

    I would not like to be without any of these three in my CD collection. Stravinsky>Prokofiev>Schoenberg based on my favourite works of them.

    That would be my ranking of preference too: Stravinsky > Prokofiev >>>>> Schoenberg

    Is Prokofiev really ahead of Schoenberg? Wow...

    Prokofiev was good, but Schoenberg was a true pioneer of music who continues to be emulated by composers today. You all need to do your homework.

    That being said, I voted for Stravinsky because he gained mastery in several different styles (late Romanticism, neo-classicism, serialism).
    to drown,
    to sink unconscious --
    supreme bliss!
