    I only really like the Bach and Eotvos, but would have to say the Light Cavalry Overture ranks among my least favourite works

    Slim pickings this time (to my taste). Just picked Bach and Suppe.

    Bach and Haydn's symphony

    The 011 threw me for a bit. It is really just 11, but I thought it could be one of those odd out-of-sequence pieces like A or B.

    Definitely Vecchie letrose ("Spiteful old hags, you are good for nothing"). Impossible to sit still through that one.

    Yes, I just put in the leading zero to help me sort my spreadsheet. It doesn't need to be on the poll.

    Bach: Toccata in C minor, BWV 911
    Certainly!

    Debussy: Hommage à Joseph Haydn
    ? Never heard of this. It sounds really interesting.

    Dillon, J: The Soadie Waste
    ?

    Eötvös: Three Sisters
    I like Eötvös as a conductor, if it's the same person I'm thinking of.

    Haydn: Horn concerto no.1 in D
    Yes! I used to have this work years ago. Not sure what happened to it.

    Haydn: Symphony no.011 in E flat
    Haven't heard this one that I know of.

    Humperdinck: Hänsel und Gretel
    I've never forgiven him for being a lounge type of easy listening singer.

    Kodály: Duo for violin and cello, op.7
    Not familiar.

    Mozart, L: Trumpet concerto in D
    Definitely no. Trumpet works as a solo instrument in baroque for some reason, but not so much in the classic era for me.

    Suppé: Light Cavalry overture
    Ah - this is literally a war horse I see! But not for me.

    Telemann: Die Hirten an der Krippe zu Bethlehem, TWV 1:797 ('Christmas Oratorio')
    Yes. this is another I used to have, but can no longer find.

    Willaert: Vecchie letrose
    ?

    Wuorinen: Blue Bamboula
    I like Wuorinen, but don't know this.

    - Damn it! I missed Hansel and Gretel when I voted.

    - i sort of wish I hadn't voted for the Suppé, because its beating the Willaert is just wrong, considering that the Willaert is not only the better piece but also the more entertaining one.
