Edition Austria/Germany is the sixth entry in this series. First, we will select and vote on composers. Second, we will select and vote on compositions. For each of the two categories, the top ten will then be available for additional national/regional games.

Composer Selection Rules:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have up to 5 composers to select.

3. Voting will end when participation significantly recedes and/or the entries are becoming quite obscure.

My 5 selections for today:

Bach, J.S.
Froberger
Schubert
Schumann, R.
Zemlinsky

Note: Being born in Austria or Germany is not a guarantee of selection approval. Conversely, being born in a country other than Austria or Germany does not guarantee a rejection of the selection. In cases where there is some dispute, I will render a final decision.

Looking forward to your selections!

Majewski, Hans-Martin
I thought the man might have a Polish connection, so I looked him up - read that he composed film music - went to Youtube - listened to over 20 pieces - none of it was in the ballpark concerning classical music - then - the last piece I heard was "Memories of Brahms - thoroughly classical and pretty good also - not much for a classical repertoire but he's in.

Begging Bulldog's indulgence: there were quite a number of Germanic composers who fled the fatherland during 1933/'34 to start careers anew in U.K., U.S.A., France & elsewhere. TC's ex-Dubliner already deposited Mr. Previn (whom I was planning to nominate as well), so please let us know who's acceptable before I start mentioning some others.

Also, Isang Yun - who was born in South Korea during 1917 - went to West Berlin in 1957 and, by 1971, obtained German citizenship. Bulldog is unlikely to create a game edition Korea ... so I hope Isang Yun could be embraced in this 'big event'?
Previn is not allowed; he was already in Edition United States.

Yun is not allowed. There will eventually be some type of Edition Asia where Yun will fit in well.

Damn... there are so many more I can think of, at least 30 that aren't completely obscure. Is the 150 total set in stone or can it be expanded, seeing that this is the "big" one?
The "big one" is big because of the relatively large number of famous composers, not because of any total number of composers from Austria/Germany.

Welcome to Qualifying Round One of our Austria/Germany Composer Game. After collecting 150 entries, the break-down is 5 qualifying rounds, each one having 30 composers. For each qualifying round, the 8 composers 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 composer may receive more than 6 points.

3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in effect. With the first composer to garner 50 points, the 12 having the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.
