Finally I get to check my music taste online:
http://ofo.no/en/guide

I could not give full score to anything, but seems my favorite kind of orchestral music would be:

Sergei Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 1 (3rd movement)
Ralph Vaughan Williams: Sinfonia Antarctica (3rd movement)
Edward Elgar: Cello Concerto (1st movement)
Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 15 (2nd movement)

I think I prefer piano music though...

I gave four to Dvorak, Strauss and Brahms on the basis of melody, harmony and mood. All the others I gave one or two and I didn't hear much rhythm in any of them. The result is accurate only in the sense that it tells me my taste is probably eccentric, which I already know. Thanks for the link though.
