This is the 71st in a series of games based on a common theme. It could be genre, instrumentation, key signature, time period, style, country, groupings such as Scriabin's Piano Sonatas, etc.

Here's how it works:

1. First voter selects the common theme and a work that fits reasonably into the theme.
2. Second voter also selects a work that fits into the common theme.
3. We keep submitting works until we have collected 20 of them.
4. The game begins.

Selection Rules:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have one selection to make.

3. Selections end when we have collected 20 entries.

4. The maximum number of selections per composer is two.

The next voter will pick the common theme and first selection of the twenty.

Btw, I guess that (like in last game) we'll have to dispose of rule 4?
Because most selections if not all of them will come from Poulenc, Milhaud and Honegger.
Auric still wrote some nice film scores, Tailleferre and Durey are completely forgotten, and in the case of Durey, rightly so.

Yes, rule 4 bites the dust.

I don't find Tailleferre completely forgotten; she gets some decent exposure here on TC.
