    Default Beethoven's 7th, Mahler's 9th (A la carte poll #60)

    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.


    You can still vote in all the previous polls - please do! For the full list, see this blog entry.

    Picked favourites only.

    I´d like to know Messiaen´s opera better, only heard/saw excerpts.

    Picked another handful, absolute favourite here is Mahler 9. Although JS Bach is my favourite composer, the Christmas oratorio never really impressed me.

    I honestly think the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony may be my favorite movement in all of classical music. I wouldn't say the 7th overall is my favorite work, but that Allegretto...

    While nefariously necroposting I --

    Shrugged at unknown Adam: Giselle
    Pounced on Bach: Christmas Oratorio, BWV 248
    Pumped the air at Beethoven: Symphony no.7

    Skipped Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius with a furrowed brow
    Sailed past Gesualdo hoping to collect some someday
    Nearly played air guitar to Liszt's Les Préludes
    Selected Mahler: Symphony no.9 with satisfaction
    Selected Medtner: Piano concerto no.2 ceremoniously
    Puzzled breifly over Messiaen: Saint François d'Assise
    Quietly dismissed Myaskovsky: Cello sonata as unknown
    Wondered where Pelēcis: Nevertheless came from
    Failed to notice Ravel: L'Enfant et les Sortilèges but do not know it.
    Selected Stravinsky, satiated.

    Rats. I forgot to select Beethoven's 7th. I'm sure it will hold its own.

    Personally, I love the Christmas Oratorio. Except I cringe at the part where the lady refers to the baby Jesus as her bridegroom.

    Gesualdo, I also like the Tenebrae Responses. Tortured confessions hurt so good.

    Mahler's 9th. Especially the first page of the score and the last page.

    Stravinsky's Soldier's Tale. A lot of Stravinsky doesn't connect with me, but this music does.

    I should like Ravel's masterpiece and feel very badly that even though I own the DVD, I haven't seen it more than once.

    I love these threads because there's almost always about 4 pieces I haven't heard of before that I will give a try. The Messiaen, Myaskovsky, Pelecis, and Ravel are on my "to listen to" list

    Tough choice between the Mahler 9 and Beethoven 7, but the Mahler is more relevant to my life.
