My Music Performance Bucket List

I am doing the 30 days of lists, but I changed today's prompt from "Playlist" to "Bucket list".  There are so many great pieces of work I would love to perform in my lifetime. Here is a breakdown of my top pieces (by category). I am sure this will change over time, but for now this is my list.

Orchestral Bucket List:
  1. The Moldeau by Smetana
  2. Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz (the entire piece, not just March to the Scaffold)
  3. Danse Maccabre by Saint-Saëns
  4. Rite of Spring by Stravinsky
  5. Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky
Chamber Music Bucket List:
  1. String Quartet in F major by Ravel
  2. Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns
  3. String Quartet in E flat major by Mozart
  4. "Death and the Maiden" Quartet in D Minor by Schubert
  5. Sonata for flute, viola, and harp by Debussy
  1. O Mio Babbino Caro from Gianni Schicchi by Puccini 
  2. Un Bel Di from Madame Butterfly by Puccini
  3. When I am Laid from Dido and Aenaes by Purcell
  4. Ave Maria by RoSewig
