The results of previous (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10) totally random polls have all been very interesting and rather surprising for me, so I now begin a totally new totally random poll. As always, the question is:

Of the recordings listed, which do you think should be the highest priorities for me as a listener?

You can see cover art below.

Same ol' same ol':

If you don't think I should have priorities, or that "should" has any place, or whatever, please feel free to vote for a recording on some other grounds, or anything! I'd be impressed and surprised if anyone has heard all of these recordings. You can vote for things based on your personal experience, your own wishes for yourself, what you've heard about them, whatever.

There is no good explanation or excuse for this poll (or its predecessors, or its successors should there be any). As before, this is not a very serious thing. It is not an attempt to discover the absolute truth about the objectively greatest whatever whatever whatever whatever. I'm just curious. I just want to put the question to the community here and see what the results are. It's nothing more than that.

Schubert, Vaughan Williams, Cage.

Elly Ameling is a personal favourite in this repertoire. Vaughan Williams with two of his best symphonies in a great interpretation, and the Cage is a must, especially for people who only "know" him from 4'33.

As a side remark to my choices: a defense for Ameling, who´s considered a bit anonymous by some:
a beautiful, regular voice, always reliable recordings without any vocal embarrassments or excesses. Good Vivaldi motets (Philips) and Ravel solo songs (Erato), for instance.

Easy choice as usual: the Albinoni concertos, the Bach sonatas, the Charpentier and the Scarlatti.
