    Xenakis
    Bartok
    Stravinsky
    Mahler
    Debussy/Ravel
    Wagner
    Shostakovich
    Messiaen
    Schoenberg
    Varese
    Vermeulen
    (Vaughan) Williams
    Schnittke
    Babbitt
    Henze
    Rihm
    Gubaidulina

    I've already experienced my dream concert. But it was one that I wouldn't mind seeing over and over again. Well, 2 concerts.

    One was a concert of only Prokofiev's Cinderella, excerpts and story-telling. That was in April 2011. I'll never forget that concert. I doubt if I see it again however, an all-Cinderella concert or ballet production, that it'll be the same emotional experience as that one time...

    The other was Glazunov's Raymonda, February 2016. Over 2 hours of his music in a single night, and him ONLY. Raymonda is basically the only time that's ever possible. But that's a ballet I'd see over and over again, different productions. That's a dream concert I'll never turn down another chance to hear.

    Not too long ago, I put up a post with lists of my ideas for orchestral programs without any warhorses on them ; all rarely heard or not overplayed works . Programs featuring music by composers of one nationality , say , Russian , French or Czech etc . I can't recall exactly where it is now , but I'll try to check or (Czech ).

    Brahms' Second Piano Concerto followed by Mahler's 9th Symphony. Two powerful works back to back.

    Good choice, Ashkenazy playing the concerto and Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting the Vienna Philharmonic .

    I'm gonna be a party pooper and say that for me, there is no dream concert. Why? Because my brain can't handle multiple great works in close succession. Consider the following (from wikipedia):

    On 22 December 1808, a benefit concert (then called an Akademie) was held for Ludwig van Beethoven at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. The concert, held in a very cold hall and approximately four hours long, featured the public premieres of Beethoven's Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, the Fourth Piano Concerto and the Choral Fantasy.
    This was a real-life dream concert, but it was too much!!

    Bartok playing his first two piano concertos followed by Stravinsky conducting Les Noces.

    I really enjoyed this thread because I picked up a lot of music that I am now listening. Plus, I took the dream concert a step further by making them happen. By that I mean I have been making playlists on my iPod similar to the dream concerts that were posted here. I have around 15 concerts (so far) that I have ready to go. The musicians are ready to play when I am ready to listen.
