March, not even a footnote? (sob) Oh well, gotta go vote in the 1520s game.

BTW these results are now on the "Best by Decade" page, near the bottom:

If the Beethoven people had had less works to defend, Ludwig would have had a better showing. Partisans of the other three contenders had less works to support and hence rode their horses a greater distance. Beethoven fans simply spread themselves too thin.

True of Schubert as well.

OTOH if Beethoven hadn't offered a lot of works, he wouldn't have taken seven of the top ten spots.

At one point the voting list was at four, all tied at three points each. Two Beethoven, one Brahms, one Bruckner. If people were voting the music instead of the composers (as I assume they were) then Beethoven got beat fair and square. Suck it up, Ludwig, there's always tomorrow!

Hehe ken, the first people to agree that Beethoven was much better then themselves are Bruckner and Brahms... (and Schubert, Berlioz, Wagner, Mahler, and about everybody else in the 19th century except Debussy).

Which wouldn't necessarily apply to the two Beethoven works that were left at that point.

Good top 10. Surprising winner. Great winner, too.

On the sleeve of one of Celi's Brickner recordings (I'm almost sure it's the winning 8th), Celi is quoted saying "Thank god for Bruckner". I see a double, or even triple meaning here, but whichever way you look at it, that phrase seems just a spot on one liner description of the composer. Celi obviously was deeply attached, musically and spiritually to Bruckner, to come up with such a short yet so appropriate a description.

KenOC,

8th place should go to the 32nd sonata. The 30th sonata is on the list twice.
