Not a fan of chamber music?Shocked Well, I'll go to the foot of our stairs! I love it, me!  Cheesy

Nope, I avoid chamber music - trios, quartets and such folderols (honourable exceptions being Brahms, Dvorak and Stanford). Likewise most solo instrumental music and sonatas. It just don't do it for me. Big orchestra (with or without chorus) everytime, full fat diet... A Colour Symphony, Morning Heroes and The Beatitudes by Sir Arthur Bliss (1891-1975).


That's interesting. For me, if the composer's language and style attract me, the genre is largely irrelevant. For example. I adore Schumann: the symphonies, the concertante works, the chamber music, the solo piano music, the lieder, the choral music... I love 'em all equally - full fat, semi-skimmed or sugar-free!
