Here is a prioritized list of classical music (inclusively defined) recommendations put together by members of the Talk Classical discussion forum and the (now defunct) Amazon.com classical music discussion forum.

Naturally, these recommendations represent the knowledge and tastes of the people who have helped build it. We do not claim that it is the official canon of art music, or that it is anything like an objective ranking of the greatness of each work!

However, to the best of our knowledge, nothing else like this exists -- no other list of prioritized recommendations including all genres of classical music, no other list as helpful to an old veteran looking for a surprise as to a newbie just familiarizing herself with the canon.


You can also view the list as an unranked, alphabetical list (though it may not be up-to-date). You can also see some simple statistical information here.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _​

Our project is ongoing, and we'd be very happy for you to add your own voice!

You can change our list in three ways:

1. The main way is to participate in the threads with titles like, "The first tier," "The second tier," and so on. You can find them in the polls sub-forum. Usually we have several going on at a time, but in order to avoid confusion, please don't bump the threads that have timed out!

2. The second way is to add new works to the list. If you want to recommend a work that is not already on our list, just post it in this thread. You can add up to 5 new works per day. All newly added works begin on the lowest tier, but they can move up from there.

One final way that you can contribute is simply by letting me know if you see errors in the list, such as incorrect dates, misspellings, and so on. You can do that in this thread, or if you prefer you can PM me.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _​

People might disagree with your votes, and you might disagree with theirs, but please be patient and persistent. Your participation will make our list better. We value everyone's participation.

If you are disappointed that a work you champion is not getting more community support, feel free to advocate for it, telling us why we should support it. Advocacy for a work will always be both more welcome and more productive than advocacy against a work.

Please be polite. Obviously we have different tastes and we don't all know the same things; we do not all agree about how strongly various works should be recommended, how great or important they are, or anything else.

The point is to learn from each other and help each other, to have a good time exploring music together.

Special thanks to Trout, who has maintained this list for years and years, and did a heck of a lot of work compiling recording recommendations, and to mmsbls, who has agreed to edit the posts in our thread when needed.

And thanks to all the people who have contributed in various ways to this project over the years! I personally have learned a lot from it, and I'm sure others have as well. I hope this will be helpful to people for many years to come, and I hope we continue to refine it as we all learn more about this amazing tradition.

Alright, so I've got a proposal, and it's one that can be totally ignored but I think it would really be beneficial to the project. How about placing the voting threads in the main Classical Music Discussion forum rather than Polls and Games? There's honestly only about 15 people who routinely visit the games section and vote, so that's hardly representative of the Talk Classical Community. I think a lot of people honestly don't even know about the existence of this amazing project because of this, and I have a feeling that they would gladly participate if they did, not to mention the fact that it would then truly be a good sample of the community that was voting rather than just the same 15-20 members every time. I'm sure you have a rationale for not doing this, but just offering a suggestion:)
Thank you for that suggestion.

I've definitely thought about it, and maybe I'll do that someday, but the main consideration is that there are people who don't like anything like this, regardless of whether we call it a game or a poll or a project or anything else, and for now they can avoid them simply by not going to that sub-forum. If we do the threads in the main forum, they'll have to see them, and I anticipate that there'll be considerably more sturm und drang over this than we've already seen -- especially if we do more than two or three threads at a time. In the polls sub-forum it's no problem even to have seven or eight going at once, but that certainly wouldn't be tolerated on the main board.

The reverse is also true. I can't speak for anyone, so of course I may be wrong about this, but it seems to me that some of the people who are active in the polls sub-forum feel a kind of camaraderie there, and so some people might be disappointed if we stopped doing our threads there.

Weighing it all up, I think you're right that doing the threads in the polls sub-forum probably means we have less participation, but at least for now it seems to me that it is the right public relations approach.

My compromise measures have been to put this thread on the main board, and to encourage people to make reference threads here and in other sub-fora (like the opera sub-forum). Hopefully that will enable at least a few more people who would like to participate to find out about it.

This has been going on (in various forms) for over ten years now, and I dare to hope it will go on at least as long again. (To be honest, I'd even like to think that if something unfortunate happened to me so that I were unable to continue creating the threads and editing the document, someone else would take it up.) Over that time we've had ... perhaps hundreds (?) ... of participants, and so I hope we'll have hundreds more, perhaps not all at once but over the long term.

In about a week we'll start a new cycle on the 2nd tier, and a few days after that we'll do the third tier. Maybe we'll do those two on the main board just for fun. Get some controversy going. But even if we do that, we'll do the fourth and lower tiers on the polls sub-forum.
