    Yes, the polls are back again: my ongoing attempt to develop a picture of the general musical taste on TC.

    Simply vote for all the pieces you like.

    For previous polls and more information, see my signature below.


    Edit: Also, to nathanb, the results of whose contemporary composers polls are giving me ideas for works to include.

    I didn't select any of them. I would probably like the Bartered Bride, but I had to do a report on that in the sixth grade, and now hearing it reminds me of an un-air-conditioned schoolroom with a wooden desk engraved from past generations.

    As to the Scheidt, I'd probably like it if I heard it. I like other pieces of his which I have heard.

    I only know (and like) the Frog Galliard and Englund's Blackbird symphony.

    I know the Mozart sonatina - used to play it clumsily, but I still don't care for it much even when a real musician plays it.

    I can't believe I haven't heard any Schumann piano trio. I'll have to go looking for it.

    I'm fairly ignorant of the rest of the list, even the Hermann Taxi Driver excerpt. I found the movie horrific and depressing.
