    I don't know what "don't mine any" means, but I chose that, because I don't seem to have a favorite period.

    By looking at this which came up at the top of my Google search,
    The major time divisions of classical music up to 1900 are the Early music period, which includes Medieval (500–1400) and Renaissance (1400–1600) eras, and the Common practice period, which includes the Baroque (1600–1750), Classical (1750–1820) and Romantic (1810–1910) eras.}
    My favorite period is going to be Classical and Romantic. I would have to study where my favorite pieces fall in order to make a selection between the two, but I suspect my favorite operas are more in the Romantic period.

    I guess the Classical Period (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven) and the Romantics that generally followed Classical forms (Dvorak, Mendelssohn, Brahms, etc). The more radical Romantics (Berlioz, Liszt, Wagner, Mahler, Bruckner, Strauss, etc.) never really appealed to me. However, there are many things in every period I enjoy.

    Hmm, I guess I don't have a favorite period. I like some from column A, some from column B, some from column C and some from column D. In general I prefer the music from periods Baroque to Neoclassical over the music from periods before and after, respectively.

    The Modern period includes Impressionism and Expressionism (as well as Neo-Classicalism and Neo-Romanticism) and it is my choice.

    I am fortunate in that I enjoy a wide range of music and tend to like what I'm listening to at the time

    I like all periods (though I am much less experienced with Medieval and Renaissance music). If pressed, I would probably take the music from right around the beginning of the 20th century, the tail end of the Romantic era and the early, if not so halcyon days of the modernists. Expressionism it is!

    Pity one can't choose more than one period, Had to choose baroque, but would also choose renaissance if multi choice was allowed.

    Romantic, especially late romantic, but I like the classical period and the various 20th and 21st century music directions as well. Baroque and earlier less, with the formidable exception of JS Bach.
