    Default My Favorite Works from 1880-1890 (Bulldog)

    This game is devoted to the works composed from 1880-1889, and I have picked my 13 favorites. When the voting is complete, I'll announce the top five selected by our participating members.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily. In addition, your 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 work may receive more than 6 points.

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

    All Aboard:

    Brahms - Tragic Overture
    Bruckner - Symphony no. 6
    Bruckner - Symphony no. 7
    Dvorak - String Quartet in C major, op. 61 - 2 (+2)
    Dvorak - Symphony no. 6

    Faure - Piano Quartet no. 2
    Franck - Symphony in D minor - 2 (+2)
    Mahler - Symphony no. 1 - 2 (+2)
    Mahler - Lieder aus des Knaben Wunderhorn, song cycle - 2 (+2)

    Smetana - String Quartet no. 2
    Strauss - Aus Italien - 2 (+2)
    Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture
    Wagner - Parsifal

    Note: This is my last "decades" game. Going further back in time would take me to the heart of the Romantic era, and I don't want to go there at this time.
