:lol: One can only admire your persistence. :lol:

Somehow, the fifth one was the most difficult: Ravel, Bartok, Poulenc, Prokofiev, Honegger.

I know that many people opt for Stravinsky but not me....

I imagine a bunch of us will match three out of five with another poster, and Poulenc would have been on there if I had been allowed six (Berg was my fifth). Webern is hard to fit in if one interprets "most often" to mean "for the greatest amount of time."

At least I had five for this one! :)

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

Oh, I don't know--one year earlier and he could have squeezed in Schoenberg. :)

Bartok, Berg, Prokofiev, Hindemith, and, increasingly of late, Bohuslav Martinu.

The other members favored the same five as I did on this one also.

Musical gerrymandering :lol:

Of this list, I listen to Stravinsky, Bartok, Prokofiev, Ravel and Hindemith the most often.

Apparently James has found a way to separate the "great" ones from the pack, at least based on the more active members of this board. Pretty interesting, actually.

I'm actually quite surprised with the high showing for Gershwin; he doesn't get too much mention in this forum.

I'm struggling to come up with any Composers, for whom I have a pssion for in this category, but will go for:

Bax, Prokofiev, Gershwin and Korngold (his Violin C gets an occasional listen) but at present, not much else... :(

this one was easy - the 3 indispensable 20th century pilars Bartók, Stravinsky & Webern. Followed by Maurice Ravel and Alban Berg.

Not many voters leaning on the Webern pillar, or on Honegger's for that matter.

Stravinsky on Webern:

"Doomed to a total failure in a deaf world of ignorance and indifference he inexorably kept on cutting out his diamonds, his dazzling diamonds, the mines of which he had such a perfect knowledge."
