As for what's next, no survey in the immediate offing (though I have listened to some Nielsen lately and enjoyed it quite a bit).  However, I am planning to dig into some 20th C music that I've never paid close attention to before: Stravinsky's classic ballet scores (embarrassed to say I have no recordings, something I plan to remedy promptly), Schoenberg's chamber symphonies and Pierrot Lunaire.

Good choices. Among Stravinsky's ballets, I'm only familiar with The Rite of Spring and The Firebird (granted, those are his most popular ballets).

I should do a Nielsen symphony cycle. I've only listened to his symphonies in a somewhat haphazard fashion, and not in chronological order. Plus, it's been quite some time since I've listened to any of them.

Thanks for the reminder about that podcast. I've just downloaded it and will try to listen to it tonight or tomorrow.
