Today I bought my copy of the latest issue of BBC Music Magazine and it lies before me with this headline prominent on the front cover. Of course we can all have our own ideas about these five pieces and I am certainly not going to hold myself bound to submit to the views of BBCMM's writer, but I started musing about which five I would choose. (I have not opened the magazine yet so I do not know which are selected there.)
In the end I chose :
Stravinsky Rite of Spring
Riley In C
I was loath to junk a few others, and indeed I am all the time thinking of other good candidates. Which do other boarders propose?
