    Default Works for Saxophone (Qualifying Round Seven)

    Welcome to Round Seven of Works for Saxophone. In the selection thread we collected 110 saxophone works which I have broken down into 10 qualifying rounds, each having 11 works. For each qualifying round, the 2 works receiving the highest scores will advance to the Finals. In addition, the 2 highest scoring 3rd place finishers will also advance to the Finals.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily.

    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 Half-Time Adjustment is not in play.

    4. Round Seven ends with the first work to reach 100 points.

    Choose Wisely:

    A few words about the Bozza Aria. Although hardly an adventurous piece, I find it thoroughly sultry and satisfying. Check it out!
