    What!? -- you don't want "My favorite works that begin with the single pitch G double-sharp?" Then I'll just have to take home my ball and bat, and head over to Ideas for Stupid Threads!

    The Rite of Spring has the most distinctive opening on C -- that croaky, marshy high bassoon -- interesting that it won.

    I think Bulldog was referring to the fact that I voted for Mozart and Beethoven in such a way so that they pull ahead of Strauss and Schubert, respectively.

    I agree, the Stravinsky has the most memorable opening C on the list -- maybe of any piece ever.
