    Default My Favorite Performers (Bulldog)

    This game is devoted to performers of classical music, and I have picked my 20 favorites. When the voting is complete, I'll announce the top ten 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.

    Let's Roll:

    Walter Berry
    James Bowman - 2 (+2)
    Alfred Brendel - 2 (+2)

    Interesting that no points are given yet to Gould... And I consider Schwarzkorpf to deserve better, and Fischer-Dieskau less so, for reasons I could start a whole thread about. Gilels is my no 1 here though, without doubt.
