    Default the lowest tier, part 2 - to Nov 29

    We're picking some works to promote from the lowest tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works. We'll do this tier here in the main board, but the subsequent tiers will be in the polls subforum.

    The lowest tier is currently the 119th tier. We'll be adding a few tiers in order to split some tiers with too many works, so this will be the 123rd when we're finished.

    It currently has 757 works, so I've divided it into 9 parts of 84 works each (and the 9th part has an 85th work). From each part, we're going to move the works that get the absolute most votes up four tiers (to what is currently the 115th tier), the next 14 works up three tiers (to what is currently the 116th tier), the next 14 works up two tiers (to what is currently the 117th tier), and the next 28 works up one tier (to what is currently the 118th tier). The works that get the fewest votes will remain on the lowest tier.

    Each voter will get up to FIVE +7 votes, up to SIX +6 votes, SEVEN +5 votes, up to EIGHT +4 votes, up to NINE +3 votes, up to TEN +2 votes, and as many +1 votes as you want. You don't have to use all of them, but you must have fewer +7 votes than +6 votes, fewer +6 than +5 votes, fewer +5 votes than +4 votes, and so on.

    If you have any questions, just ask!

    Probably none of us knows all of the works listed below. Feel free to vote for the works that are already familiar to you, but voting on this thread will be open 12 days -- closing Nov 29, Korea time, so you have plenty of time to explore a few that are new to you, and I sincerely hope that many of you will do so. That's the entire point of this project! In fact, I really hope you'll try a few things that you normally wouldn't....

    When the time's up, I will tally the votes on a Google sheet, post the results in the main thread of this protect, and move the works to their new tiers.

    Have fun! Also, please remember that we hope our selections will influence people's exploration of classical music.

    Incidentally, if you spot a work that we're missing, check the alphabetical list to be sure, and if we really are missing it, then go to the main thread to add it. You can add one new work every day, but you can add several days' worth of works at once if you want.

    Here is a template you use for your vote:

    +7 (up to 5 works)

    +6 (up to 6 works)

    +5 (up to 7 works)

    +4 (up to 8 works)

    +3 (up to 9 works)

    +2 (up to 10 works)

    +1 (unlimited)
    Within those levels, I'd appreciate it if you put the works in alphabetical order for me. Makes it much easier for me!

    Here are the eligible works for this thread (please let me know if you spot any errors):

    Does anyone know if one can hear the Cerha Violin Concerto online? I can't find it on youtube or Naxos.

    You can stream the Schiff/Eotvos recording on ECM on Amazon if you've subscribed to that.
