    I would vote enthusiastically for Ruslan and Lyudmila in its entirety, but I don't believe in overtures.

    Definitely Don Carlos one of the absolute finest operas ever.

    I'd vote for the Mozart, I think I liked it, but cannot remember it.

    That's a strong line-up. The Glinka is hilarious and the Ligeti is very much a hommage to Brahms that ma surprise some with preconceived ideas about Ligeti

    I'm happy to listen to overtures and other extracts generally, but I know you're not alone here. Several months ago, for example, I learned that Sibelius's Swan of Tuonela is much less popular on its own than when it's part of the full Lemminkainen suite.

    Goldmark: Violin concerto no.1 in A minor, op.28
    Grofé: Grand Canyon suite
    Mozart: Piano concerto no.17 in G, K. 453

    I have to put in the Grofe because they played at on a ride at Disneyland, and it brings back such wonderful memories.


    I've tried to get into Messiaen's Vingt Regards, but it hasn't shifted into the "like" category yet.
