Quote from: foxandpeng on July 29, 2021, 09:23:15 AMI'm tempted to agree. Although later I might not. I probably will, though. Any of the three would be in my top three at any time, I think, despite how others may nudge their way in. .
Quote from: Christo on July 29, 2021, 09:38:44 AMGreat to learn, was afraid to be laughed away because of these choices.
Quote from: Mirror Image on July 27, 2021, 04:27:06 PMApologies if this thread has been done before as I did a search and nothing came up, but anyway who are your three choices?Mine are (in no particular order):MahlerBrucknerSibelius

Quote from: amw on July 28, 2021, 08:01:21 AMConsidered including Beethoven, but his symphonies are basically just Martinů's with less pianos.
Quote from: foxandpeng on September 26, 2021, 08:58:52 AMDifferent 3 to RVW, Tubin and Holmboe:Emil TabakovPer Nørgård Pēteris Vasks Tabakov is ridiculous. Potent, turbulent, disturbing, remarkable. Nørgård is simply outstanding. Vasks is Vasks. 'Nuff said.
Quote from: Mirror Image on September 26, 2021, 07:19:06 PMInteresting choices, fox. I didn't know you liked Nørgård. I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan, but his 3rd and 4th symphonies are the ones that impressed me. I also like his 1st, which I know Jeffrey (Vandermolen) is fan of as well.

Quote from: foxandpeng on September 27, 2021, 03:50:16 AMIn many regards, Nørgård was an obvious branching exploration from Holmboe, but his whole world looks and feels somewhat different, obviously. Like you, I would name #1, 3, and 4 as really enjoyable works, but would include #5 as a particular favourite. That's not to say that I don't rate #2, and 6-8, because I do . Irrelevant to this thread, but his SQs #7-10 (no experience with the earlier ones yet), and the VCs and Cello Concertos are well worth time investment. Running at his Da Capo and Chandos recordings was a real eye opener for me some time ago. Doubtless you are well aware already.
