Here’s a little list of the ones I could live most happily without:
1 Mahler’s 8th symphony
The one he never bothered to revise
I’ve tried, believe me.
3 Für Elise
Or any other five easy pieces
There, I’ve said it. Berg’s bit of serial porn turns me off.
5 Four of the Tchaikovsky symphonies
You decide which. I don’t really mind.
Apart from the 2 concertos and that devastating late violin sonata
Including all those composers who claim they’re not really minimalists
Oui, c’est vrai.
Go on then, your list?
