    Unfortunately Mahler has too many movements to accommodate a poll on this platform, so have at it in the comments! :)

    When it comes to beer its horses for courses really One mans poison ect and I am loathe to upset anyone here who might be upset at having their favourite tipple harangued but I do say, whilst I will drink almost anything in the beer world, I draw the line at this. To Paraphrase Robert Falcon...

    It's been a long time since I've read something of this nature, I'm afraid my literary evolution has been halted for some years now :( Figured I'd start with something small and this'd be a good place to ask ;) Oh, and a couple more questions - did you keep evolving/ expanding your literary...

    No explanation needed. I guess If you are bored you could just discuss about their colours, your favourite pieces with them, the physics involved or whatever.
  6. Vocal Music
    Hopefully this isn't quite like simply asking who anyone's favourite poet, author, philosopher or playwright is, but does anyone gravitate to the words of any particular writer(s) when they are set to song? There may well be examples by that most prolific of wordsmiths Anonymous - please feel...
  7. Non-Classical Music
    I have often enjoyed an evening youtube searching for alternative takes of a favourite song. If this idea catches on I hope others will pick a favourite song, select their recommended versions and if they are lucky others will alert them to alternatves that they had been unaware of.. (hint!)...
  8. Solo & Chamber Music
    The first chamber piece I listened to when classical music finally clicked (in a big way) with me was Death and the Maiden. Five years on and it is still my favourite, by some distance. I wish I still had it to discover .... Can anyone excite me? I do love the late quartets by that German bloke.
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    I wonder if this game will work or if it has been done before..... Basically it goes a little something like this: Member A posts the title a well known piece and its composer (which has been recorded a lot.) Member B replies with a CD cover (or DVD or LP or even a YouTube link) of their...

    Hi everyone Can anyone help me name the song played in the background? It's heard in this video and is said to have been nazi dr. Joseph Mengele's favourite tune. Thanks! mmhenrot

    I hope its ok to make a thread of our memorable comedians. Not the crude sort. This is my particular favourite old one. I love his letters from Mammy!

    These important works deserve more talk time. I go through periods of just listening to PeterT all day long it's that amazing. Stirs the emotions for sure. My ranking (least favourite first): Manfred,4,1,3,2,5,6. I still like the Manfred symphony especially the ending of the first...
  13. Orchestral Music
    I am quite sure that a few "Favourite Mozart Symphony" threads have already been posted, but I did not want to unearth a random one just to say that my favourite one is number 36. I thought that this poll is somewhere between this forum and the Community forum, so feel free to move it there if...

    A fairly self-explanatory title.
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Apologies in advance - you've probably had something similar to this a few times before! I am just starting to get to know the Beethoven String Quartets, loving what I have heard (Razumovsky 3, op.32 - OK, not much thus far) and have decided that I should take the plunge and get to know the...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    What is your favourite recording of Tchaikovsky's first piano concerto? Or who is your favourite interpreter of it? I heard the RLPO and Nikolai Lugansky play it (brilliantly) tonight and when I was putting my iPod playlist together for the trip to Liverpool I realised I now have 10 recordings...
  17. Vocal Music
    I don't know very many, but I'm thinking of Berg's 5 and Strauss' last 4 as favourites. What are your favourite orchestral songs?
  18. Vocal Music
    What are your favourite albums of German Lieder, French Mélodies or English and other language Art Songs?
  19. Classical Music Discussion
    Who are your favourites? What recordings do you recommend? Have you seen any live? What are your local contemporary music ensembles? Who are your favourite conductors or musicians in the contemporary music scene? Who do you dislike and why? I would be interested to see what people's opinions...
  20. Strings
    What are some of your favourite viola works? I've been looking for them a lot recently. Any contributions would be appreciated. Edit: I just saw on Stupid Thread Ideas that I have 1001 posts... making this the thousandth. Is it really that many already? What a nice Christmas present!
