Welcome to Round Two of A Game of Four Categories. After collecting 300 entries, I have broken the total down into 15 qualifying rounds, each having 20 works. For each round, the 4 works having the highest scores will advance to the Semi-Finals.

Rules of the Road:

1. You may vote once daily.

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

3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in play. With the first work to garner 50 points, the 8 with 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 Two ends with the first work to reach 100 points.

I feel guilty for not giving any points to Borodin's superb second string quartet, but the truth is I tend to listen more to orchestral rather than chamber music, although Borodin's chamber work is one of my absolute favorites.

Beethoven's fifth is my favorite classical composition by any composer, in any genre. It is also a bit of a sentimental favorite since it (together with the sixth) served as my absolute first introduction to classical music around the year 1980.

The Dvořák seventh is not my favorite symphony of his (that would probably be No. 5 or 6), but it is a very fine symphony by one of my favorite composers.
