Hi! :D
I thought it would be fun to create a poll with favorite composers from a style. Can't wait to see the results!

Well, I don't think it's fair to make us choose just one!!!

That is a good point. Will the browser let you choose more than one?

No, it won't. I tried, and it changed the selection.

That is, I was kidding about it not being fair to have to choose one composer. Sorry, my last post was not real clear.

I couldn't remember voting but it says I voted. I think I may have voted for Brahms but I don't think I have a specific favorite out of the list.

Well, I had a hard time choosing, but I went with the composer I always play when I have time to...Chopin.

I pull out his nocturnes on a drizzley day (like today), his waltzes when I'm in a good mood, and his ballades and scherzi when I'm feeling extra dramatic! :p

Initially. I was torn between Chopin, Liszt and Debussy, but when I went with my heart there was no doubt - Chopin won hands down! (pun intended.) :laugh:

Stretto, you must have pressed the button on the bottom of the poll which allows you to see the results. This nullifies your vote. :(

That was a tough one for me. I picked Liszt, many people see Liszt as the piano virtuoso guy ... which he was. He wrote many dazzling works, with fingers flying everywhere ... but many people only just see the dazzling technical areas ... watching the fingers doing their little stunts isn't everything. There are many melodies and themes that Liszt weaves. Many play Liszt so ugly and without the intricacy it should be treated with. Even so, Liszt had much contrast in his compositions, every Liszt piece should be treated differently because they really do contrast and are all different. I also think that people are often unaware of the other instruments he wrote for- he did write an opera and some art songs!

Well, enough of my speech ... Liszt is a great composer!
