I'm probably going to get vilified for this crass idea but I thought it might be fun to compile a chart of all the delcampers' favourite pieces. Well, it would be those who participate - a bit like a survey. I did a search and didn't see anything quite like this...
But my idea is that we'd all submit a top 10 and then I'd periodically produce the 'current' chart. My idea is to give a number or score to each person's choice and add them up over all the top 10s entered to get an overall position.
My 'current' top 10 is:-
1.Antonio Ruiz Pipo - Danza No 1
2 Falla: La Vida breve
4 Domeniconi – Koyunbaba
5 Bustamente – Misionera (arr. Morel)
6 Sains de la Maza – campanas del alba
7 Sagreras– El colibri
8 Ryan - Benga beat
9 Maxwell-Davies - Farewell to Stromness
10 Bach: Prelude In D Minor BWV 999
so my no 1, Danza, would get 10pts and no 2, La Vida breve would get 9 pts etc.
and then the next person's would be taken into consideration and so and so forth. Hopefully pretty straightforward.
So if you good people are interested in this bit of fun then let me know your top 10. If few are interested then I'm sure it will languish in the abyss of unpopular threads with few replies
I could have gone with a top 20 or 100 but I thought 10 was manageable for most people.
By the way, I have many pieces bubbling under that might have made the list on another day:-

Narvaez - Diferencias Sobre Conde Claros
Roland Dyens - Fuoco (Libra Sonatine)
Satie – Gymnopedies #3 Lento

Sanz - Canarios
Barrios – Le Catedral
Albeniz - Sevilla
Koshkin - Usher waltz Op 29
Einaudi - Le Onde/Questa Notte
Tansman: Sonatine - 3. Vif
Krouse: Variations On A Moldavian Hora
Tarrega – Adelita
Canova Da Milano: La Compagna
Fantasia (Alonso Mudarra)
