I would have to say most of Liszt's piano music - except for the sonata and a few late pieces.

I enjoy reading threads like these, because I am astonished at how some people find some of the music I like a great deal, boring  8)

I thought you liked Siegfried Wagner?

True, the son is much better as the father.
Try some of his operas. :)

i haven't read anyone who thinks Prokofiev, Schoenberg, or Stravinsky, for example, is boring.....

and yeah, i'd be surprised, too, if someone mentioned Prokofiev since the guy practically has to try to be boring.

The majority of the Telemann I've heard makes me snooze. There are some pieces of his that I like very much, but as a generalization...nap.

the whole point of Minimalism is to bore you to death.

Then it succeeds admirably. I was going stir-crazy in my seat at a recent Steve Reich concert.

the strange thing about minimalism is: it's either meant to get you to fall asleep or make you totally hyper. But if it ends up making you hyper and you can't move around in your seat, that must suck  :P

Minimalist can be boring as any other style, sure sometimes it's so repetitive that your head almost explodes, but you have to be in the right mood ;D

I've been listening to a lot of Steve Reich latelly as a matter of fact and i'm enjoing it!
That triple quartet rules my world.

That would explain why so many people find Brahms boring.

Yeah ... minor Goldmark is full of subtle nuances.

Or at least gravitate to only the most Beethovenesque pieces
