    Default An Interactive Game - String Quartet One-On-One Match Countdowns (Field of 32/1)

    Welcome to the Field of 32 one-on-one string quartet matches. For Round One, we have 8 matches for our voting enjoyment, and the 8 winners will advance to the Field of 16.

    Rules of Engagement:

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

    2. A match ends with the first quartet to reach 40 points.

    3. If you have a preferred quartet, give it 2 points and the other quartet 0 points.

    4. If you do not have a preferred quartet for whatever reason, give each quartet 1 point.

    5. In case both quartets in a match reach 40 points at the same time, the match will continue until one of the quartets gains an advantage.

    Let's Vote:

    Barber - String Quartet, op. 11 - 2 (+2)
    Górecki - Quasi una fantasia, String Quartet no. 2, op. 64 - 0

    So far, the only match that surprises me is Dvořák/Grieg. Given that Grieg is held in high esteem here on TC, I thought that his excellent string quartet would give the "American" Quartet some good competition.
