Quote from: DavidW on May 23, 2023, 05:08:43 PMIn local concerts here the most frequently performed composers are Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky. If it is baroque it is rarely anything but Bach. For 20th century, Ravel and Rachmaninov are performed the most often.

Quote from: lunar22 on June 03, 2023, 08:51:32 AMI'm not aware of any differences between European countries as to the most played composers in orchestral concerts. Everywhere Beethoven and Mozart dominate with plenty of Mahler, Brahms, Bruckner and Tchaikovsky. The core repertoire -- esp. regarding concertos -- is pretty small with the same old stuff being trotted out over and over again.

Quote from: lunar22 on June 04, 2023, 11:34:04 PMI don't really know Swiss Classic but looking through their programme list, it looks as if it's orientated towards the more popular classics - perhaps not quite as much so as Classic FM but somewhat in that direction. Of course Bruckner will not appear with any frequency on such a station -- his symphonies are too long and serious apart from anything else. But they do appear with monotonous regularity in concert programmes in the UK and Germanic/Nordic countries at any rate. It goes without saying that the generally short pieces or individual movements of mostly not too demanding classics that are played on popular classical radio stations are different from what is given in the concert hall. So we're not necessarily in disagreement.
