    Default A Game of Variations (Qualifying Round Three of Five)

    Welcome to the 3rd qualifying round of A Game of Variations. After collecting 100 pieces, the total is broken down into 5 rounds, each having 20 pieces. For each round, the 4 pieces with the highest scores will 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 piece may receive more than 6 points.

    3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in play. With the first piece to garner 50 points, the 8 having the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.

    4. Qualifying Round Three ends with the first piece to reach 100 points.

    Let's begin on this delightfully sunny/warm day:

    Bach - Aria Variata alla Maniera Italiana, BWV 989 - 0
    Beethoven - Variations on an Original Theme, WoO 80 - 0
    Blacher - Variations on a Theme of Paganini - 2 (+2)
    Brahms - Variations on a Theme of Haydn (St Antony Variations) - 0
    Brouwer - Variations on a theme of Django Reinhardt - 0

    Copland - Orchestral Variations - 0
    Dohnanyi - Variations on a Nursery Tune - 0
    Elgar - Enigma Variations - 2 (+2)
    Haydn - String Quartet in C major, op. 76/3 "Emperor" (2nd movement) - 0
    Kodaly - Variations on a Hungarian Folksong "The Peacock" - 0

    Lutosławski - Paganini Variations - 0
    Mendelssohn - Variations serieuses, op. 54 - 0
    Piston - Variations on a Theme by Edward Burlingame Hill - 2 (+2)
    Rachmaninov - Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini - 0
    Riegger - Variations for Violin and Orchestra - 0

    Schmidt - Symphony no. 2 (2nd movement) - 2 (+2)
    Schubert - Piano Quintet in A major "Trout", D. 667 (4th movement) - 0
    Shostakovich - Theme and Variations for Orchestra, op. 3 - 0
    Tchaikovsky - Variations on a Roccoco Theme - 0
    Webern - Passacaglia, op. 1 - 2 (+2)

    Given that I had not cared for any Blacher works I heard in the past and that I've never like Paganini's music, I was skeptical of this variation piece. However, I end up enjoying it greatly; it has plenty of variety, fine melodies, and a good mix of comfort and edge. Impressive!

    Tough round, with the Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Elgar being particular favorites. The Brahms ain't half bad either.
