In no particular order, 1. Mahler (esp. 7th & 9th symphonies) 2. Prokofiev (just about everything, but especially Piano Concertos 2 & 5, some of his operas, and his ballet and film scores) 3. Liszt (Sonata in B minor, transcental etudes, piano concerto #2, many of the Symphonic poems... you name it) 4. Ravel (just about everything he wrote is nearly perfect, but especially the Piano concertos and Gaspard de la nuit) 5. Poulenc (especially his piano and orchestra work, like Aubade) And Saint-Saens for honorable mention. I also like some more modern stuff, like Ligeti, Messiaen, Scriabin's weird mystic later stuff, Glass, etc. Though I love Don Giovanni and the Requiem, Mozart has really never done much for me. Haydn, Handel, Scarlatti, etc. and a lot of baroque stuff (not counting Bach) didn't float my boat much, either. But, hey, different strokes for different folks.
