    Default the 48th tier - to Feb 23

    We're picking some works to move up from the 48th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works.

    This tier currently has 24 works. Based on the results of our voting, we'll move the top 10 works - or a few more in the event of ties - up to the 47th tier. If any works get a lot more votes, they could move all the way up to the 46th tier. The work(s) that get the fewest votes will move down to the 49th tier. All works will have a chance to continue climbing next time we do whatever tier they land on.

    So each participant gets gets as many +1 votes as you want, and if you use at least TWO, you can have up to TWO +2 votes, and if you use them all, you can have up to TWO +3 votes, and if you use them all, you can have up to TWO +4 votes, and finally if you use both of them, you can have up to TWO +5 votes.

    Voting on this thread will be open 5 days -- closing Feb 23, Korea time.

    I will tally the votes on a Google sheet.

    Have fun! Also, please be considerate! Someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!

    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.
