Préludes
Images, Books I & II
Six épigraphes antiques
Cello Sonata


This very well could be my choices. My list really does change everyday.

Nocturnes

After that the piano music in no particular order

Never got on with Jeux or any of the vocal music.

Today’s list:

Études
Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé
String Quartet in G minor
Images, Books I & II
La damoiselle élue
(esp. the version for soprano, mezzo-soprano, chorus, and piano)

This is such a fine list that I think I’ll just leave it, but I’d probably exchange La damoiselle élue for Sonata for Flute, Viola, & Harp as this is one of my favorite pieces of music from anyone.

Preludes, Book I
Preludes, Book II
Estampes

I can go with this. I am fond of the Images Oubliées.  Piano music all the way, and the some of the chamber music.
