Our Top Ten Works of the 1800's:

1. Schubert - String Quintet (1828)
2. Beethoven - String Quartet no. 14 in C sharp minor, op. 131 (1826)
2. Brahms - Clarinet Quintet (1891)
4. Bruckner - Symphony no. 9 in D minor (1896)
5. Mahler - Symphony no. 2 "Resurrection" (1894)
6. Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto no. 1 in B♭ minor, op. 23 (1875)
7. Beethoven - Symphony no. 3 "Eroica" (1804)
8. Schumann - Kreisleriana (1838)
9. Dvořák - Symphony no. 8, op. 88 (1889)
10. Beethoven - Symphony no. 5 in C minor (1808)

Observations:

1. As mentioned earlier, the top three works are chamber compositions - that's a surprise.
2. Beethoven, with 3 entries, is the sole composer to have more than a single work in the top ten.
3. Schumann's Kreisleriana is the only solo piano work on the final list; Tchaikovsky has the only concerto on the list.
4. No choral works.
5. No Beethoven 9th!

The complete top 5 scores 6/6 on the Artrockometer - also pretty rare!
Do you have somewhere a list of all the classical music works that get a 6/6 on your music evaluation system? If yes, could you please share? I would like to see if I know all of them. Your blog on favorite pop/rock albums has been a very useful tool of exploration of non-classical music to me so far. :)

My favorite ten works in the final round today:

1. Beethoven - String Quartet no. 14 in C sharp minor, op. 131 (1826)
2. Schubert - String Quintet (1828)
3. Beethoven - Symphony no. 5 in C minor (1808)
4. Bruckner - Symphony no. 9 in D minor
5. Schubert - Symphony no. 8 in B minor "Unfinished" (1822)
6. Bruckner - Symphony no. 7 (1883)
7. Fauré - Requiem (1890)
8. Beethoven - Symphony no. 3 "Eroica" (1804)
9. Mahler - Symphony no. 2 "Resurrection" (1894)
10. Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 29 "Hammerklavier" (1818)

I love, love the Grosse Fuge - but I like to listen to it together with the op. 130 string quartet, not as a separated piece.

Let me try this:
  1. Brahms - Clarinet Quintet
  2. Schumann - Kreisleriana
  3. Mahler - Symphony no. 2 "Resurrection"
  4. Fauré - Requiem
  5. Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 29 "Hammerklavier"
  6. Schubert - Winterreise
  7. Beethoven - String Quartet no. 14
  8. Beethoven - Symphony no. 3 "Eroica"
  9. Dvořák - Symphony no. 8
  10. Schubert - String Quintet
7 of these ended up in the actual top 10 and I think all the works above would be among my top 100 all-time favourites (maybe except D. 956). So the results to this game are quite reasonable from my perspective.

I like almost all works on the list. I enjoy that the first three are chamber music.

However, opera was a significant genre in the 1800s. In the beginning the italian opera was dominating, in the end we have the fully blown Verdi success, we have Meyerbeer and others in France, in Germany still Wagner (although already passed away).

Sometimes I think our view on the time around around 1800 is overshadowed by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, what is far away from the day-to-day-reality of this time. Italian opera was dominating, concerts with symphonies were seldom ("Academies").

I am happy to see the Eroica which changed the way of composing a symphony. Its counterpart among string quartet is Beethoven's op. 59 which I had liked to find in the list.

No mass, no requiem.

Ok, that's how it is ... our preferences are different form the people in the 1800s. We have much more focus on symphonies and key works of chamber music (which are at maximum distance from what a interested listener could hear in his time).

Right so - no reason for hiding gems like Beethoven's late string quartets, Schubert's late chamber music, the works by Brahms and Dvorak and many others.

Although I find it always funny how things develop and how perception of what is important and what preferences are changes over time.

That's how it is ... may it help not to care to much about the own beliefs and mindset, as it would certainly be different if we lived in other times.
