    Was it a Mahler 8 and Bruckner 3? If so, they may prefer more popular alternative symphonies by each composer.

    My long departed cats (Cougar and Juno) never paid attention to any music classical or otherwise although Cougar always enjoyed when I picked him and danced to George Harrison's "Got My Mind Set on You."

    GOOD question! I never thought of that angle. I'm going to have to give that one some thought. Well, there goes the next few hours of my day....

    There's a cat here for the last 15 years. He hates everything and thinks he's better than me.

    My favorite cat is used to Rock and Metal.

    When I started listening to classical music, he didn´t like it. Now, it doesn´t seem to bother him; except for Paganini. He doesn´t seem to like Paganini.

    Beethoven´s string quartetts, on the other hand, don´t bother him.

    Birds love baroque music, they never become afraid to come at my balcony when I play baroque music, they love flute, harpsichord, recorder, lute, airs I am not sure about noisy symphonies, but my cat seems to hate them.

    My cats seem to pay no attention to classical (or any other) music, except to have a slight aversion to the sounds of the flute. I assume it's the pitch, but upper-register violin doesn't seem to bother them. What always causes me to smile, though, is when a live recording ends with an outburst of applause. Never fails to cause a sleeping or drowsy head to come to immediate attention with eyes wide and ears fully on alert.

    The dogs do not respond to any type of music, nor vocals. i play recordings most of the time, and quite loud. They do react to sounds that are transition signals, like the turn off tones of the computer. Perhaps habituated, but no reactions when as young pups they were first exposed. Strongly responsive to natural sounds, so i cannot play those relax-by-natural-sound recordings or Paul Winter without alerting (confusing) them. Sounds i cannot hear from the surrounding wald and certain familiar cars they are aroused and expressive for. i encourage this barking. Irish setters, several generations.
