    Default Finally, Beethoven's 6th (A la carte poll #65)

    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.

    Picked favourites only (3): Purcell, Albeniz, Beethoven.
    I like Boccherini´s chamber music but don´t recall that work immediately. Carter and Bruckner are allright of course, but haven´t listened much to these works.

    The Brilliant CD box with Esteban Sanchez playing Albeniz is highly recommendable, IMO.

    I should add that the Boccherini is the one with "the" minuet.

    Voted for less than usual. Beethoven 6 is my fave among these.

    Oops! I missed it. I should have voted for Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. I actually have a recording of it and I think it's pretty good

    Beethoven, Bruckner, Strauss. Strauss mostly for the opening which immortalizes Samuel's Aerophon. Or at least it should have.

    I didn't select Dido because it brings back bad memories of having to sing one of its pieces at a Renaissance Fair in breeches, stockings, a linen shirt, a cape, and a beret. Oh, and slippers. To this day "Go revel ye cupids, go revel, go revel" induces flashbacks.

    Heh. It's not a good sign when one has to Google something that's just been described as immortal!

    Poll seems to be bearing out the fact that Beethoven's Sixth is one of the all time greatest classical works ever.

    I wouldn't necessarily say Beethoven 6 is one of the 'greatest' - though I would say it is one of my favourite works and I expect it will be one of the most popullar pieces

    Maybe there is no difference in meaning between 'one of my favourite' and 'one of the greatest' for some people?

    Handel is still at 0%. Poor guy could have used your vote.

    There are other Handel works I could vote for, but I've never heard/heard of the Recorder Sonata—there were four of them, too

    Handel's recorder sonatas are fantastic! I've got two recordings of them, one performed on the recorder and one on the flute. That and of course Beethoven's 6th get my vote

    Edit: Here are some links to the recordings I own.

    My mistake, I voted Paganini instead of Handel.
