What are your top three pieces in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries? Mine are:

19th Century:
1. Liszt: Sonata in B minor
2. Dvorak: Symphony no.9
3. Brahms: Piano Quintet in F minor

20th Century:
1. Prokofiev: Piano Concerto no.2
2. Ravel: Piano Concerto in D minor for the left hand
3. Bartok: Sonata for 2 pianos and percussion

(They do change every day though!)
