Re: Taboo band piece? Steppes of Russia?
Considering how infrequently Beethoven's 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 8th are performed, in comparison, yes, the 6th (and especially the 5th and 3rd, for that matter) would be considered overplayed.
The 9th would be overplayed but most groups don't have the personnel (including a chorus) to pull it off.
