    Default My Favorite Unusual Concertos (Art Rock)

    Art Rock has the second game in this series, and he selected the category of "unusual concertos". He has picked 20 different composers and 20 different instruments excluding piano, organ, violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, oboe, trumpet, horn, harp and guitar. When all voting is complete, I will announce the top ten unusual concertos.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily - voting sessions must be at least 6 hours apart.

    2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to distribute as you wish except that no symphony may receive more than 5 points.

    3. The game ends with the first work to reach 100 points.

    Note: None of the games in this series will include a half-time adjustment. I've decided not to eliminate any favorite works of participants.

    It is, I don't think he composed another one anyway, that's why I did not add the SC8 to the title.

    My first points in this round are based on limited knowledge.

    I am looking forward to listening to all the ones I don't know.
