    Default I Don't Like Any Music By This Composer Except This One Piece, Which I Love...

    What it says on the tin. If you want, you can provide the recording you usually hear.

    For me:

    R.Strauss - Four Last Songs
    Janowitz/BPO/Karajan

    I find that I enjoy the exceptions in the ouvres of composers more often than their works across the board

    for example:

    Mahler - Symphony No. 9
    Brahms - Piano Concerto No. 2
    Berlioz - Fantastique and Les Troyens (and I adore him for those!)
    Haydn - Symphony No. 104
    Messiaen - Turangalila
    Schoenberg - Gurre lieder
    Shostakovich - lighter pieces
    Elfman - basically only Batman
    Goldsmith - the scores where he was asked to imitate Williams (and once Elfman's Batman)
    Sousa: Stars and Stripes Forever (and similarily I enjoy only singular pieces by such "march & dance" specialists)

    Is there a recording you prefer? Did S.Richter record it?

    Sorry, I’m not knowledgeable about recordings of the concerto

    I can't think of any entries in these categories. Either I like more than one piece, or I only know one piece (I've never heard any Berlioz other than Symphonie Fantastique).

    Orff - Carmina Burana (and yes, I tried a number of other works)
    Verdi - Requiem (and yes, I tried his most famous operas)
    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.
