In case we get down to two pieces before I crawl out of bed, gamemeister's option is:

ONE-UP ONE-DOWN VOTING WHEN ONLY TWO PIECES REMAIN.

Subject to change!

march,

What I said in response to Henry was in roughly the same tone as Henry's statement. It was also no more outspoken than Henry's. The only difference was that I didn't turn a subjective opinion into an unassailable truth.

Neither did I jump around throwing silly words like "hypocrite", threatening to make a mountain out of a molehill. I also gave you the opportunity to tell me why you thought I was wrong, which you've failed to do.

And now you've put me on "ignore". So what? It's just the ultimate sanctuary for those who can't offer valid criticism & those who can't handle valid criticism. You, evidently, are incapable of both.

Kim.

Chopins --

(this is difficult - either would be a fine winner, in fact I nominated both Chopins. But the Schumann PC is THE romantic piano concerto for me, ever since I heard the legendary Lipatti recording)

I don't know how other Romantic Era piano lovers feel but in general I find the solo piano literature to be of a much higher quality than the piano concerto repertoire. It probably has to do with the Romantics struggling with reconciling their newer ideals with the sonata form concerto model as developed by Mozart, Beethoven etc. I'm thinking of Schumann, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Liszt in particular though probably not Brahms or Tchaikovsky. Of these, the Schumann, Brahms and Tchaikovsky Piano Concertos seem the most successful and appreciated by players and audience alike.

Even the Alkan Concerto for solo piano (kind of the Italian Concerto of its period in its imitation of tutti and solo passages) seems at least as remarkable a piece in terms of its thematic material and its working out than many of the contemporaneous concertos with orchestra.

It's an interesting pair! The Schumann is certainly one of my favorite concertos of the era, but Chopin's Nocturnes have been with me since I started listening to classical music.
