Home Music Lane

It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

OK. now set for all time.

I think we nailed it pretty easily!

For me Mahler 9 is out for the same reason Beethoven 5 is out. I've spent very little money on audio over the last few years, though I'm still accumulating LPs and CDs, instead I have been to a lot of concerts, so yes one can hear toooo much Brahms. Large force orchestral Mozart, well, I just don't go to those concerts.

For me:
Brahms 4
Dvorak 9
Rach 2
Tch 6

Rach 2 or Schubert 8. Depending on frequency (Schubert) or limited value as a warhorse (Rach) - I'm a harsh judge. Luckily even the old timers are too young to remember when Grofe walk the earth.

I'm Tempted to include Sibelius 2 or Shostakovich 5. Honorable mention is Verklärte Nacht; there was a year that every startup chamber organization in NYC played that work. I agree that non-symphonic works like RK Scheherazade & Mussorgsky/Ravel, Pictures might also figure in.

My personal Desert Island Warhorses, the darkness of the works would provide shade.
Sibelius 4
Mahler 5
Nielsen 5
Beethoven 5
Maybe I'd sneak in Saint Saens 3 to lighten the load?

Thanks all!
