    Default The Mendelssohn/Schumann Competition (Selections and Game)

    Welcome to The Mendelssohn/Schumann Competition. Born less than 2 years apart, our two composers were giants of the early Romantic period, although Mendelssohn's classical style was far different than the adventurous Schumann. First order of business is to select 20 works from each composer.

    Selection Rules:

    1. You may vote once daily.

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

    My picks for today:

    Mendelssohn - Piano Trio no. 1
    Schumann - Kreisleriana
