    Default Game (prelim 2/5): It's an old man's game

    Welcome to the It's an old man's game. We have nominated 80 works of composers who at the time were 76 years or older. For simplicity's sake, I've taken age as 'Year of completion of the work' - 'Year of birth' and don't bother with actual days. These works will now be run in five preliminary rounds and one final. The overview and distribution over the rounds can be found here.

    The rules:

    1) you may vote once during your calendar day.
    2) you have 10 points to distribute, but no composition may received more than 4 points (deviating from the Bulldog games). Just copy/paste the latest board and add your votes.
    3) there is no halfway elimination of compositions with low scores.
    4) the round ends with the first composition to reach 80 points.
    5) at the end of the round, the three compositions with the highest score will go to the final (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference). In addition to these 15 compositions, the fourth placed composition with the highest score will also move to the final.
    6) do not post negative remarks on any of these compositions, feel free to discuss them positively, and at any time you may post YouTube links to their works.

    If there is anything unclear, just ask.

    Qualified for the final:

    Fauré - String Quartet - 1845 - 1924
    Gubaidulina - In Tempus Praesens - 1931 - 2007
    Strauss, R - Oboe Concerto - 1864 - 1945

    Candidate for best #4:
    Lutosławski - Symphony No. 4 - 1913 - 1992 - 48
