    Default Game (prelim 7/13): Even more unheralded symphonies

    About a year ago Bulldog ran a game with 200 nominated 'unheralded symphonies' (his selection criterion: "As a rule of thumb, no symphony with 20 or more recordings currently on the market is eligible. However, that does not mean that all symphonies having fewer than 20 are eligible." ). After he closed the nominations at number 200, many thought we needed more, so I started a sign-up for the next +/- 200. The actual game has been delayed, but we now have 208 more unheralded symphonies to play with in 13 preliminary rounds, three semi-finals, and one final. The list of nominations and the game plan including the preliminaries line-up 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 semi-finals (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference). In addition to these 39 compositions, the nine fourth placed compositions with the highest scores will also move to the semi-finals. The winners of the preliminary rounds will be evenly distributed over the three semi-finals.
    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.

    Alfvén - Symphony no. 2 (winner, seeded)
    Alwyn - Symphony no. 4
    Badings - Symphony no. 4 (winner, seeded)
