Welcome to the 1st qualifying round of Favorite Works of the 1800's. We collected 300 compositions broken down into 15 rounds, each having 20 works. For each round, the 4 works with 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 use as you please 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 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. Round One ends with the first work to reach 100 points.

Having the Kalinnikov and Tchaikovsky symphonies, plus Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherezade in the same game is simply not fair! Let alone the Chopin and Clara Schumann concertos, and Sarasate!
There's an easy way to handle this situation:

You listed 6 favorites - dump one of them and give each of the others 2 points - then further refine the next day you vote after seeing what the trends are.
