    Default the 13th tier - to June 4

    We're picking some works to move up from the 13th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works.

    This tier currently has 17 works. Based on the results of our voting, we'll move the top 9 works - or as near to 9 as possible in the event of ties - up to the 12th tier. The work(s) that get the fewest votes will move down to the 14th tier. (But because this tier is already so small, we won't move down any works if three or more tie for fewest votes.) 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 one, you can have one +2 vote, and if you use it, you can have one +3 vote, and if you use it, you can have one +4 vote, and finally if you use it, you can have one +5 vote.

    Voting on this thread will be open 6 days -- closing June 4, Korea time.

    I will tally the votes on a Google sheet.

    Have fun! Also, please consider that someone 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.
