    Default the 18th tier - to Feb 25

    We're picking some works to move up from the 18th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works.

    This tier currently has 12 works, and we're going to move about 5 of them up to the 17th tier, while the work(s) that get the absolute fewest votes will be demoted to the 19th tier. Of course all works will have a chance to continue climbing the next time we do whatever tier they land on.

    Each participant gets gets ONE +5 vote, ONE +4 vote, ONE +3 vote, ONE +2 vote, and as many +1 votes as you want. You don't have to use all of them, but you only get a +5 vote if you use a +4 vote, you only get a +4 vote if you use a +2 vote, and so on.

    Voting on this thread will be open 4 days -- closing Feb 25, 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!

    Here are the eligible works for this thread:

    Bizet: Carmen [1875]
    Chopin: Nocturnes [1827-46]
    Chopin: Preludes, op. 28 [1839]
    Debussy: Nocturnes, L 91 [1899]
    Fauré: Piano Quintet #1 in D minor, op. 89 [1906]
    Fauré: Piano Quintet #2 in C minor, op. 115 [1921]
    Kodály: Sonata for Solo Cello, op. 8 [1915]
    Monteverdi: Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610 [1610]
    Mozart: Quintet for Piano and Winds in E-flat, K. 452 [1784]
    Rachmaninoff: Symphony #2 in E minor, op. 27 [1907]

    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.
