    Default Game (semi 2/3): String quartets 1920+

    Welcome to the String quartets 1920+ game. We have chosen 180 string quartets that were composed from 1920-2020. These have been pitted against each other in fifteen preliminaries to reduce the field to 30. We now will continue with three semi-finals and one final.

    Voting Rules:

    1. You may vote once daily (your calendar day).

    2. To vote, please:
    - copy/paste the previous post
    - remove the (+x) by the previous poster
    - add your votes and include your own (+x) after them
    - after posting, please check whether someone else has posted just before you
    - if so, adjust your post accordingly
    - please do not bold the compositions you vote for, please do not use different colours
    - if you want, you can bold the composition reaching the finish line (60)
    - please do not delete the reminder statement about halfway the compositions list

    3. When you vote, you will have 12 upward points to use as you wish except that no work may receive more than 3 points.

    4. The Half-Time Adjustment is not in effect.

    5. The round ends with the first composition to collect 60 points.

    At the end of the round, the top five compositions will move to the final. If necessary, I will apply a tiebreaker (the last time there was a difference between compositions ending on equal points). In addition the best #6 of the three semi-finals will move to the final.

    The full list of the 15 preliminary rounds can be found here.

    The full list of the 3 semi-finals can be found here.

    At any time, feel free to say something about the compositions, link to video's, etc.


    Already qualified for the final:

    Bartók - String Quartet No. 3 (1927)
    Gubaidulina - String quartet No. 4 (1993)
    Janáček - String Quartet No. 1 "Kreutzer Sonata" (1923)
    Schnittke - String Quartet No. 2 (1980)
    Shostakovich - String quartet No. 8 (1960)

    Candidate for best #6:

    Carter - String Quartet No. 3 (1971) - 42
