    Default Not the last judgement (A la carte poll #82)

    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.

    Definitely not Glazunov. Unfortunately I don't know the Spohr or Tveitt works so I couldn't vote for them.

    I like all the ones I know, but a couple of those I've never heard. I went through a Spohr phase recently, but I must've missed that one. I think my personal favorite of all of those has to be the Ravel.

    Most certainly Tallis.

    Indubitably Bruckner.

    Definitely. I was definitely glad I saw it as a poll option because I definitely listened to it today. How definitely do you like Bruckner?

    Burning question of the moment: is the Tveitt concerto preferably known as "Aurora Borealis" or "Northern Lights"? I guess Tveitt called it "Nordljos".

    Picked favourites only - Beethoven, Bruckner, Tveitt.
    I haven´t really felt connected with Ives´ 4th yet. Haven´t heard Spohr´s work and, as far as I recall, Nono´s.

    Emphatically the two I've heard. There's others I'm sure I'd enjoy but have yet to hear, and I've been a good boy. Definitely.

    For this poll I just chose the three B's and Ravel. Much of the rest I don't know and Gershwin is a still a little too jazzy for me even though I like jazz a bit.Verdi: Rigoletto

    Other than hearing once or twice the piano duet arrangement of Ravel's Introduction et allegro, I do not know any of these works.

    I may have to find a way of getting my gravestone to play the opening bars of the Allegretto ma non troppo of Beethoven's Op. 101 sonata when visitors come around. The first piece of classical music I ever fell in love with.

    Otherwise, Bruckner #5, Gershwin and Ravel. I didn't feel that I could vote for Ives as although I've heard it once, it hasn't stayed in my mind.

    A motet for 40 voices, and by Tallis no less? Sign me up!
