A Game of Nations and Regions (Edition Nordic Lands)

5340 Views 413 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  Prodromides
Edition Nordic Lands is the eighth 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.

Just to insure that we are all on the same wavelength, the Nordic lands include the sovereign states/kingdoms of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.

Composer Selection Rules:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have up to 3 composers to select.

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

My 3 selections for today:

Nielsen, Carl
Nielsen, Ludolf
Pettersson

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

Söderman - 8 Songs, Op. 11
This is a mistake. It should be:

Peterson-Berger - 8 Songs, Op. 11

Both composers appear on the album Skandinavische Chormusik, hence the confusion. My apologies.
