    There was a work created collectively by Les Six, and there's of course the collection of variations by other composers published by Diabelli as Volume 2 to Beethoven's Volume 1.

    Beethoven participated in several "group" works, typically providing one movement or a chorus. I gathered a list somewhere -- at least one was written for the Congress of Vienna. He didn't like to do that sort of thing, and none of these works are remembered today.

    ... and just a few years after Il Trionfi di Dori, there was The Triumphs of Oriana.

    Typical of me, the usual suspects: Beach, Haydn, Mozart (yeah, I know - shocking) and Rachmaninov.

    I've had the sheet music for the Sinding Rustles of Spring my entire life, but never could play it -- so I've never heard it! It never wound up on any CD in my collection.

    I've heard some Rihm and like what I've heard; I just haven't heard that one.

    Amy Beach: Symphony in E minor, op.32, 'Gaelic'
    Glazunov: Symphony no.6 in C minor, op.58
    Haydn: String quartet no.68 in D minor, op.103
    Mozart: Symphony no.31 in D, K.297, 'Paris'
    Rossini: Petite Messe solennelle
    Satie: Valses distinguées du précieux dégouté
    Zemlinsky: String quartet no.1 in A, op.4

    Amy Beach squeaks in on the Gaelic Symphony because the Nashville Symphony recorded it. It's enjoyable, but I don't love it. The rest I have more enthusiasm for.

    I voted pre-emptively for a few, guessing that I would like the piece if I heard it. Is that ok?

    The voting instructions were just seven words long: Vote for all the works you like.
    By coincidence, the poll question was also seven words long: Which of these works do you like?

    How you vote, and whether you read ambiguity into a couple of very clear sentences, is between you and your conscience, but really...
    I mean, this could be a serious slippery slope here. First people start voting for works that they might like, then they start voting for works there's only a remote possibility they might like, then they vote for works that other people like, then works that other people might like, then works that other people should like, and before you know it we'll have dogs and cats living together, and Donald Drumpf as president...

    Jagden und Formen is rippingly exciting and a work I wouldn't hesitate to anyone who was interested in contemporary music but not sure where to start

    I suspect Mozart's sy 31 is out in the lead because it's probably the one work most of us know - except for the Haydn and Rossini which I dont know well enough to say if I like them - I dont really know any of the others.
