Yeah, I've been using https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_symphony_composers
No problem to come up with a dozen German symphonies from 1890-1910 using the Wikipedia entries, but good luck finding anything that's been recorded.
Yours is a significantly better list - My compliments - I wish I would have been able to access this sooner - Would have saved me hours of time - But that narrow time frame really is a headache and this will essentially be a list of 20 symphonies that I've never heard written by 20 composers who I've never heard of ...

This game has troubles. If I'm counting right, we have 8 works. I'll wait about 24 hours to see what happens. Then I will decide whether to keep shooting for 20 entries, play a game with less than 20, or just cancel the game. Of course, Andante Largo's input will take precedence (assuming he provides input).

This game has troubles.
Agreed, or, to be precise: I have problems in finding a single symphony matching the criteria, let alone, that I know the work. Zemlinsky, Schmidt, Pfitzner, Mahler, Strauss, Reger - either Austrians or too early or too late or they didn't wrtie symphonies.

Congratulations to all experts listing matching symphonies.

You mentioned Reger, maybe at least his Sinfonietta (1906) will do?
It's a symphony (of 50 minutes playing time even...) in all but name.

14. Volbach - Symphony in B minor (1909)

And one more, since I missed yesterday:

15. Rudorff - Symphony no. 3 in B minor (1910)

One only has to scour the deep, dark back-catalogue of the CPO label to find suitable nominations for this game! :cool:

Welcome to Game Fifty-Three of A Common Theme Among Twenty Works. The common theme for this game is Symphonies composed between 1890 and 1910 by German composers. There are 15 symphonies for our listening and voting enjoyment, and I will announce the top five at the conclusion of voting.

Rules of Engagement:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to use as you please except that no work may receive more than 6 points.

3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in effect. With the first work to garner 50 points, the 5 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. Game Fifty-Three ends with the first work to reach 100 points.

Enjoy:
