What's your guess about this? Mine would be Chopin and Beethoven and I have no idea who I would put in third place.

Any other ideas about this "Popularity" contest?

Thank you!

There's no way Bach makes the list.

There's no way Liszt can be on the list. He stopped concertizing regularly for personal gain in 1848, long before he died.

There's no way Chopin can be on the list. He stopped concertizing much because of his immense stage fright.

It's "composers who are most often performed" rather than "composers who performed most often" - the title is a little ambiguous, but I think that's how it should be read wink

Oh I'm sorry wink .

I see a good bit of Chopin played which is undeserving.

In my opinion, competition programs should have something by Bach, to show deep musicianship and a technique that can't be hidden by the pedal.

Then, of course, just my thoughts, something slow showing great musicianship, such as Brahms 119.

Finally, I think a virtuoso display should finish laugh .

This question wasn't about competitions, but about professional recitals. Is English your first language, dnephi? You seem to be having some difficulty in understanding this thread. And as for Chopin's music being undeserving of its unending popularity within recital programmes, well the fact of its very prevalence proves that you are in a minority with that opinion.

I'm still busy listening to all the early rounds of the QUeen Elizabeth Music competition - the most popular composers are definitely Chopin and Liszt. After that it's probably Ravel, but with very little variation in the pieces chosen.

What an interesting question. I would like to see a statistics chart considering:

1. Country (of performance).
2. Occasion (recital, competition).
3. Composer.
4. Opus.

I prefer to read this as "there's a good bit of Chopin played which is undeserving of the master's genius". Of course that's what you meant, dnephi? wink

Ok....back to the original question here, mostly Chopin, Beethoven, then Liszt, and probably Rachmaninoff.

Really, guys, it is useless debating over what English we're using, so long as it is English. (Of course, I could be speaking pig latin and some people wouldn't know the difference)... smile

THat's right. When it comes to Chopin, I'd like it to be played well. I think that the best Chopin should be played, like the Ballades or the Preludes. There are great nocturnes, but let's hear a 48-1 instead of another 9-2 performance.

If I feel this way, at least Busoni agrees with me laugh .

Since when isn't a competition a professional recital? Shouldn't they be similar in conception? I've gone to many and often they follow this program.

And... yes... it's my first language. I'm being careless. Sorry. Although I speak other languages wink .
