Beethoven's 9th

I'm so glad that Beethoven's 9th was No. 1--again--on the WQXR Classical Countdown. Some rationality in the world.

The 6th was 8th, the 5th was 3rd, the 7th was second. Fourth was, I believe, the 5th piano concerto. The violin concerto was maybe 16th. Not a bad showing.

Ok, where were the piano sonatas? The Eroica?

Lots of Mahler this year. And where were Mozart's symphonies? (I didn't hear everything, but for heaven's sake, Mozart above Mahler.)
