Your top favourite works of all time
« on: August 19, 2021, 07:15:48 AM »
The "classical music" we are considering here is the "Western" which goes from the Middle Ages to today.
Works from other "classical traditions" (say Georgian, Carnatic, Balinese, etc) should be called for in another thread.
 
Two other rules I put in place:

1. Order your list according to your preferences in individual works.
2. If you repeat a composer then the works must be of different classical subgenres.
3. The limit is 50 works, for tha sake of the sanity of our fellow members.


Here I go with my top 25 at this moment:

1. Boulez - Le Marteau sans maître
2. Debussy - Trois Nocturnes
3. Takemitsu - The Dorian Horizon
4. Debussy - Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
5. Ligeti - Double Concerto for Flute and Oboe
6. Feldman - Rothko Chapel
7. Kurtag- Officium breve
8. Cage - String quartet in four parts
7. Perotin - Alleluia Nativitas
8. Webern - Symphony
9. Webern - Quartet
10. Vivier - Lonely Child
11. Beethoven - Symphony No.6
12. Bach - Cantata Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme BWV 140
13. Rameau - Hippolyte et Aricie
14. Chin - Violin Concerto
15. Bach - Golberg Variations (piano)
16. Brahms - String Sextet No.1
17. Wagner - Das Rheingold
18. Debussy - Pelléas et Mélisande
19. Mussorgsky - Boris Godunov
20. Stravinsky - Petrushka
21. Mozart - Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra
22. Boulez - Pli selon pli
23. Mahler - Das Lied von der Erde
24. Bruckner - Symphony No.9
