This is the 52nd 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.

Solo or chamber works (up to 8 players) named Nocturne or with a reference to the night or the moon in the name. The name may be given by the composer or a very common used name.
Examples of eligible works: Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 14 "Moonlight"; Ravel - Gaspard de la Nuit; Schumann - Nachtlied

My selection:
Debussy - Clair de Lune (from Suite Bergamasque)

Szymanowski - Symphony no. 3 "Song of the Night"
8. Mussorgsky - Night on Bald Mountain
Sorry but these are not eligible here: "Solo or chamber works (up to 8 players)". These players may be instruments or voice(s).


Chopin Nocturnes Op. 9 (Nos. 1 - 3)

If the game organizer allows, I would nominate the entirety of Chopin's nocturne as one composition.
About this one I prefer to leave the choice for Bulldog, as the game organizer, to decide if Chopin's whole set of Nocturnes are ok or not. It's a question that reappears sometimes.
