Welcome to the TC Top Recommended Lists project!

The project philosophy is summarized below:

- The TalkClassical members with a wide variety of interests and experiences can reach a consensus on the top works from a variety of musical forms.
- The process should lead to some interesting debate and discussion regarding these various specialized areas of music.
- The resulting list will be posted as a Sticky Thread and may be used as reference points for both newcomers and long-time classical listeners to the world of classical music and to specific areas of classical music as defined by these lists.

An up-to-date, downloadable, and printable version of all the compiled lists is now available here: View attachment TC Top Recommended Lists.pdf .

Finally, don't forget to check out our current list thread, The TC Top 100 Recommended Choral Works. Your input is much appreciated! :)
