    I can stand the Tchaikovsky in the Farnadi/Scherchen recording mainly. It´s very different.

    Unfortunate for me that the Daugherty work is one of those of his which I don't have yet. Still, nice to see him included.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    And thus I shall conclude this chapter of polls with my usual answer!

    I don't know any of these works.

    These are my votes. The rest I'm unfamiliar with or just don't like. I've heard good things about the Metropolis Symphony though.

    Beethoven: String quartet no.9 in C, op.59 no.3
    Hanson: Symphony no.2, op.30, 'Romantic'
    Shostakovich: Piano concerto no.1 in C minor, op.35
    Tchaikovsky: Piano concerto no.2 in G, op.44
    Vaughan Williams: Symphony no.6 in E minor
    Wuorinen: Time's Encomium

    The Wuorinen piece I knew when it was fairly new. I didn't profess to understand it, but I loved all the bleeps and blurps. Maybe I understood it after all.

    Thanks for this poll and the previous 153 - they've provided a regular source of interest, amusement and education in recent months.
    Well done

    Back in the '70s, I used to have a number of Wuorinen LPs on Nonesuch, but I haven't heard any of his music since then. I believe Time is one of the ones I used to have. Did I like it? He slid into the recesses of Vergessenheit for me, so I don't know.

    My votes went to:

    Beethoven: String quartet no.9 in C, op.59 no.3
    Kurtág: Aus der ferne III for string quartet
    Shostakovich: Piano concerto no.1 in C minor, op.35
    Smetana: String quartet no.1 in E minor, 'From my life'
    Vaughan Williams: Symphony no.6 in E minor


    These two I must have heard, but I don't remember them so I didn't vote for either.

    Tchaikovsky: Piano concerto no.2 in G, op.44
    Khachaturian: Piano concerto in D flat, op.38



    May I echo Headphone Hermit's thanks for this and the preceding "A la carte" polls?

    Those who haven't yet should really listen to Hippolyte et Aricie, it's such a great work and one of my favorite operas.
