    Default From Salzburg to Big Sur (A la carte poll #62)

    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! Follow the links in my signature below.

    Der Rosenkavalier, Strauss is one of the few romantic composers I like and I must admit that I'm not familiar with any of the other pieces.

    Almost all. Schubert's SQ15 takes first prize for me.

    Wow!

    Only one person (so far) has clicked the Byrd Mass - is that because it is not liked or because it is not known? I suspect the latter - in which case, I heartily recommend it to you as one of the pillars of early renaissance music that is well-worth a listen to.

    Its one of the great pieces of English music from the past thousand years.

    Know it, have it on CD, not crazy about it. But that holds for Renaissance music in general.

    ^^^ Fair enough. We all have some types of music that 'click' for us and some that 'don't click'.

    At least you and I can agree on the Schubert String Quartet (and almost all of the other pieces on the list )

    Judging by previous appearances of Renaissance (and medieval) music, I imagine it's "not known".

    Only six selections for me this time.

    If I'm listening to "tonal" or common practice music, I like for it to change chords once in a while. that rules out the John Adams. (Yes, I have heard the Big Sur piece. It still doesn't have enough harmonic movement for me usually.)

    I have no doubt I would love the Biber and Byrd masses, but I don't know them. I'm still an opera novice as well.

    I like all the pieces I know except Shostakovich (I'm allergic to Shostakovich for some reason).

    I like Puccini in small doses, but a whole opera is usually a little too much for me. I've never heard all of La Boheme.

    I'm sure I would like the Haydn sonata, and may even have heard it, but I can't remember it. I don't know Wieniawski.

    Please +1 on The Dharma at Big Sur.

    (that's assuming that it's not possible to +100)

    I dislike one and haven't heard two. Voted for the rest.

    Yes, it's that I don't know the Byrd mass either.

    I voted for the Haydn piano sonata which is one of his very best, the Schubert quartet D.887 (a masterpiece), the Shostakovich concerto and Der Rosenkavalier- but also La Boheme. Puccini's a bit off my main track, but I was in a 'CD Club' in the 80's and gave Tosca, Turandot and La Boheme a try - I still enjoy them once in a while.
