    Default Game (nominations): It's an old man's game

    Welcome to a game suggested some time ago by one of our members - the pendant of the young man's game that is nearing its end.

    This game focuses on compositions created by composers who at the time were 76 years or older. For simplicity's sake, I'll take age as 'Year of completion of the work' - 'Year of birth' and don't bother with actual days.

    You can nominate one work per your calendar day. I'm capping number of works per composer at 3, so choose wisely.

    The format for nomination is as follows:
    Composer's family name - Work name - Year of birth - Year of completion of the work

    My pick for today:

    Strauss, R - Four last songs (Vier letzte Lieder) - 1864 - 1948

    That's a very tough cutoff. The greatest composer of "old man's works", Janacek, didn't even live to 76!

    Carter, Vaughan Williams, F Martin, PM Davies, Sallinen, Gubaidulina, just a few candidates from the top of my head. Of course, it will be skewed to more recent composers given the rise in life expectancy over the centuries.
