Your Favorites in Music

Postby chopinman0901 » Wed Oct 17, 2007 7:21 pm

I really hope there isn't a topic like this already...
The purpose of this is for everyone to tell what their favorite composers, pieces, and key signatures, and other musical things are. I'm just interested in seeing what other people think and feel. I'll start, and everyone else will fill in their personal answers for the same categories I have. You can put more than one for a category if you really want to, but try to keep it at a maximum of 4 items per category. Tell me if there's a new category you want in it!

-Baroque: None, I don't like the baroque period at all
-Classical: Schubert
-Romantic: Chopin
-Impressionist: Debussy and Ravel
-Late Romantic: Rachmaninoff
-20th Century/Modernist: Scriabin
-Overall: Chopin!!!
-Piano Solo: La Valse, transcribed for piano solo by its composer Ravel
-Chamber: Cello Sonata in G Minor by Rachmaninoff, the Piano Trios in A Minor by Ravel and Tchaikovsky
-Orchestral (can be with piano): Piano Concerto #2 in C Minor by Rachmaninoff
-Overall: La Valse, transcribed for piano solo by its composer Maurice Ravel
Type of Piece: Waltz
Key Signatures
-Major: E
