What are pieces everyone else likes that you don't?

Recommended Posts

I'll start things off:
Tchaikovsky Symphony 5
Brahms Symphony 4
Dvorak Cello Concerto
I'm sure I'll add to this list in the comments eventually as I think of more.

Almost all XVII, XVIII, XIX Centuries works, with some exceptions.

I'm a big Dvorak fan but I also never warmed to the cello concerto. 

I also never got into Brahms' symphonies, except for the first.

I'm also not a huge fan of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.  I recognize that is an impeccably constructed work but it is just too "clean" for me if that makes any sense.

I'm pretty okay with the Mendelssohn, but never really got into the Tchaikovsky. I don't think I've listened to it all the way through on account of me getting too bored...

The first piece that comes in my mind is Canon in D - Pachelbel...

I don't like Brahm's compositions (particularly his symphonies). They sound weird and unlogical to me. I have the same with R. Schumann. However, I like his chamber repertoire, except his piano music.

Actually, I like almost all music, but in a different way. I listen to Mozart and Schubert to relax, I ''listen" to Baroque music while studying, except Bach. I listen to mostly Romantic composers to be astonished. I listen to all music to learn and get inspiration.

HATE Canon in D

Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is not extraordinary and SO overplayed

2nd movement of Mozart's KV 467 - Good piece, but not as good as many of his concerto movements

I can't stand popular music.

I have many reasons but I don't want to talk about it.

Basically everything that is played too much...

Idk things like Mission Impossible theme, Pirates of the Caribbean theme, Rocky theme.

Also all of these Zimmer things.

Barok music too.

Most of this site is going to want to murder me for saying that but...

I also can't stand Bach's music.

Indeed, I can hardly tolerate overplayed music of any kind.

I particularly dislike over-pretentious Latin Jazz and most pop music - except for Romantic ballads.

I'm ambivalent about jazz in general - it's as if I should love it because I love classical as well, but I can't. I don't even get the relationship.

I am also supposed to like modernist, avant-garde music, because we all must like that (or at least fake it) to get any kind of credibility as serious musicians - but I hate it, and I know most people hate it as well despite the snobbery.

I could go on and on...

I don't like Alban Bergs violin concerto... The beginning I find ugly and boring. Just a bad start to begin a violin concerto. Berg never did it for me, none of his works. The strange thing is: I do like avant-garde music. I'm more of a Webern person. 

I'm neither a great fan of Berio. I should, I know... I like Nono more.

I don't care for Berg's violin concerto either. I am not a fan of Mozart in general. I like his Requiem mass. There are a few things here and there in the operas and otherwise that I will admit to finding tolerable, but I really just think he is a devolution of music from what had come before him. He is so much simpler and frankly dumber in comparison to Bach and Handel and even more often I'd rather listen to other people who composed around his time like Schubert, Beethoven, Borodin and Hayden.

I second Pachelbel's damn Canon (talk about stretching your fifteen minutes of fame). Also I'm not too fond of Rap or Mariachi music.
