    Nerrefid, you're conflating liking and knowing, so I think you need to start again.

    After SS and realdeablues' suggestions ends, y'know we could host a "a la carte polls" weekly. It could last for 157 weeks!

    I did not vote because I am not familiar with all of them.
    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. And I am a very ingenious fellow

    Just to clarify - the question is which of these do you like?
    It's intended as a snapshot of what you know and like right now. If you're familiar with only one piece, and you like it, then vote for that piece. If you're familiar with only one piece, and you don't like it, then vote "I know some of these, but don't like any of them".
    If people voted only if they were familiar with all the pieces, there'd probably be at most 3 voters.

    I mean, you can go away and listen to everything and then come back and vote, but that's not what I'm looking for.

    Yes, I have to focus to remember which poll I'm answering. This is the "Like" poll as opposed to "Have Heard" poll.

    Adams, John: The Chairman Dances
    Was a better president than a composer in my opinion.

    Anderson, Leroy: The Syncopated Clock
    A guilty pleasure. Why not?

    Bach: Orgelbüchlein (Chorale preludes), BWV 599−644
    Yes, even though I often avoid organ.

    Clarke: Prince of Denmark's March (Trumpet Voluntary)
    Don;pt know it.

    Enescu: Piano sonata no.3 in D, op.24 no.3
    Yes! Enescu can do no wrong.

    Honegger: Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher
    I don't think I know this.

    Ifukube: Japanese Rhapsody
    Want to know it but Ifukube is kind of rare (except on Naxos).

    Messiaen: La Nativité du Seigneur
    Not yet, but I love almost all the other Messiaen I've heard. I can now spell his name without looking it up.

    Popov: Symphony no.1, op.7
    Never heard of him/her.

    Rzewski: De Profundis
    Don't know this work.

    Schnebel: Ekstasis
    Gesundheit.

    Schubert: Suleika II (Ach, um deine feuchten Schwingen), D.717
    Must be a lieder. I don't know it.

    Shostakovich: String quartet no.01 in C, op.49
    Probably not. Some of his later ones are okay.

    The Honegger is very interesting but just not that successful IMO
