    Default The Sibelius/Strauss Competition (Selections and Game)

    Considered two of the most rewarding composers of the 20th Century, they were born just 1 1/2 years apart. I am very high on both composers, although my current preference resides with Strauss. However, past games and comments lead me to believe that Sibelius has the upper-hand. We will select 20 works of each composer, then play our competitive game and see how it all turns out.

    Selection Rules:

    1. You may vote once daily.

    2. When you vote, make one Sibelius selection and one Strauss selection. If you prefer, you may select just a work from one of the two composers.

    My picks for today:

    Sibelius - Swan of Tuonela
    Strauss - Oboe Concerto in D major

    Looking forward to your fine additions!
