    Note: the Tchaikovsky Andante cantabile comes, as you may know, from his 1st string quartet. But this poll is specifically asking about the cello and orchestra arrangement Tchaikovsky made some years later. If you only know/like it in its string quartet guise, don't vote for it.

    None that really grab me - but Wagner, Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky are reasonably OK ... .

    I've heard the Manoury a couple of times and it's an extraordinary massive work. Plus Reich and Wagner for me

    I only know three from this list, the Brahms, Gottschalk (how does one pronounce that name anyway?), and the Tchaikovsky. I like all three.

    Bump - this one slipped off the radar rather quickly.
