    Thanks Bulldog, and thanks for playing everyone. I decided to basically "sit this one out" by only voting for the works at the lower end. My favourites from this batch of 20 are Adams, Chin, Corgiliano, Gorecki, Gubaidulina, Rouse, Takemitsu and Vasks - a lot of which ended up in your top ten.

    I hope people who played discovered a new work (or even a new composer) that you like.

    These were very, very interesting.

    I knew most of the composers but a lot of the music was new to me.

    And Dorman was a new name.

    Perhaps it shouldn't have been - but it was!

    The Vasks Concerto for cor anglais is my favourite for that instrument.

    Always liked Jolivet's music but wasn't too familiar with the Ondes Martenot concerto. Absolutely wonderful piece from a too-often neglected composer.
