    Good...
    All I have to do is to download their tracks from YT and listen to them, after the confirmation.
    Are the nominations under 2 hours? It seems the rules have changed.

    I am in also. Let's not stick to this 2 hours rule. Otherwise we should exclude operas, bad mistake . My proposal is :
    Niels Marthinsen : Snapshot Symphony

    So I'm the third one to make a nomination? According to the list.

    I'm in for this one.

    So what is item 1 and how long do we have to listen to it and discuss it?

    a couple of additional rules:
    - work should be in youtube - my proposal wasn't, so I find new one
    - separate thread for works should contain rolling number like #1 Listening Club : Borodin ...
    - master list should contain dates like Borodin ... (11.6-17.6.2012)

    ----
    and finally separate thread should have link to work like this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k9Tm...186BE8FB373317

    Lets get the nomination thing sorted out once and for all. Half the people seem to be under the impression we're nominating and then voting. The other half simply wants have each member be assigned a week, and we listen to whatever piece that member chooses (thus providing us with more variety of pieces, and less time wasted on nominating).


    If you want to go down the list, and have individual members choose a piece for the week, 'like' this post.

    If you want to have members nominate, and then vote on what we listen to for each week, 'like' this post.



    We can tally at the end of the day.

    Yes, that is correct, though I think we have settled on Borodin symphony for week 1. Fugue will pick week 2, Vesteralen week 3 and you will have week 4.

    I'm happy to have each person on the list make a selection and we listen and comment for a week. When all the details are finalized, we should probably post a complete set of rules in this thread. This thread should probably have links to all the threads that discuss particular works.

    Item 1 will be Borodin: Symphony No. 1. Official discussion will be for a week starting on Mon 11th June, but the thread will be still available for latecomers. Item 2 will start next Mon (18th Jun) and is yet to be nominated by Fugue.

    I will also suggest that the deadline for nominations be 1 week before the start of the discussion (excepting the first few weeks). After that, if someone does not nominate something, then the next members nomination will be picked as default. There is no proposed length restriction.

    I think that availability on YouTube would also be required, though this shouldn't be our only source of exposure.

    I'd like to nominate Beethoven String Quartet No. 15, Opus.132 for the second session.

    I have the Borodin all fired up and ready to go.

    This is exactly that CD I borrowed from a friend 6 years ago and I have the mp3s on my PC. Very interesting.

    Symphony No.3 is also very nice, don't forget to listen to it.

    YT links for those who don't have the CDs:

    1. Adagio:

    I've been away a couple of days.
    It looks as though things have moved a bit.
    The way that I'm seeing this is that we now have our list
    We are on our way with the nominations
    The dates have been set
    All the pieces should be available on YT
    We should all check that we have enough money to buy copies of all the music we will be exposed too


    My piece is Relache by Satie
