There are some names in that list that make stuff I wouldn't even call music, let alone consider beautiful music grin but I accept that we are all different, with different tastes.

Objectively though, that "harpsichord concerto" by Falla is a proper tragedy, and I say that as a harpsichord player. You don't bang chords on the harpsichord sad It's played more like a mandolin than a piano.

TheMaestro Sun 15-Oct-17 23:18:51

Probably just as well I didn't put the Pettersson on the list then...
