KBACH's Most Wanted 2018

Thank you so much for shaping a fine Most Wanted Top 100 for 2018! September's voting was the most ever.

14 pieces were not on the 2017 list -- and of those, five are making their first-ever appearance... Bizet's Pear Fishers duet, Schumann's Piano Concerto, Gershwin's Piano Concerto, Vivaldi's Mandolin Concerto, and Bruch's Scottish Fantasy.

The Bizet duet came in as a write-in this year along with Rachmaninoff's Vocalise.
