Rossini and Tchaikovsky are WAY overused.
Mahler is beginning to be overdone, not on the radio, but in Concert halls. Same with Shostakovich.
Well, I joined this forum to stand up for something, and hopefully I'll be supported. Glazunov is classical music's best kept secret. Remember I coined that term! He was actually rated higher than Schoenberg in a recent poll that asked perhaps thousands of people. How about that for a comeback?

I don't find it satisfying to listen to, and I feel it is one of his least inspired works. His Seventh and Adagio from No. 10 I find are not played enough, and they really are fantastic works.perlnerd666 wrote:And the comparison is hardly worth making with Schoenberg.
Could not agree with you more on this one. In my opinion, Schoenberg was a far better composer than Glazunov, even though his compositions can be less accessible. I get especially angry when people say that atonal and serial composers' music contains no emotion compared to more traditional composers. Listen to Dallapiccola, B. A. Zimmerman, and to Hartmann. If you find no emotion in their music you must be completely ignorant.
