    I am surprised Elgar's Enigma Variations is not getting more votes. I just abandoned it myself, but I like it as much as the Rachmaninoff. However, the Rachmaninoff seems to have a much better chance in this game. The Brahms is also a fine work. Schubert's snippet of a quintet is a great work, but I would rather vote for a complete composition.
