    I have logically chosen the period of my Master, but I like ALL the periods of (quality) music.

    Are there any periods that are not quality music? If so, which ones?

    I started listening to classical music from Romantic period and haven't really managed to break out.

    Medieval and post-modern, obviously—they got zero votes.

    If I could have access to the music of my 50-year period 1895-1945, plus the music of Brahms, enough of my CM appetite would be appeased so that life could continue.

    Baroque and Renaissance. I love counterpoint.

    I go with Romantic, but I personally tend to divide it into early- and late- Romantic since it seems like such a large period. I'm more into early to mid Romantics like Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt's earlier works, late Beethoven, Mendelssohn, some Brahms...


    Seems unfortunate to me that there are no great admirers of post-modern music here.

    ^ I chose post-modern for you. I wasn't going to vote because I couldn't choose between the options (all of which are "my favourite period"). I think the poll should have allowed us to choose more than one period and suspect that if it had there would have been more people choosing post-modern.

    I didn't vote since there is no single period as listed in this poll that is accurate for my taste:

    All pre-Baroque periods for which we have surviving music i.e. Medieval and Renaissance, and then the post-1950 period. While I listen to music between these periods, I do not do so nearly as much as the bookending periods I have described.

    1857 to 1859.

    Guess why.

    Not sure why there isn’t a multiple vote option, but the Romantic Era through the 20th Century. I won’t choose between them since I can’t do multiple votes.

    Anything from Baroque to Modern; no atonality, please.

    I voted "Baroque", but I like the classical (especially the early classical period with Luigi Boccherini) and the early romantic period (especially Beethoven and Schubert), too.
