Once again a totally loaded field to choose from. I love the works by Bizet, Chabrier, Dvorak (my second favorite cello concerto after the Elgar), Grieg (my favorite PC by any composer!), Lalo, Mussorgsky, and Tchaikovsky! Not counting several others that I like! Simply an impossible field to choose from. It breaks my heart to have to choose between them this early in the game.

I am surprised at the lack of enthusiasm for the Lalo Cello Concerto and the incidental music by Bizet, both of which are still languishing with 0 points. I would happily give each 6 points daily, and would have in this round if I wasn't trying to shore up support for the Tchaikovsky Symphony and Grieg's Piano Concerto. At least Dvorak's concerto is getting some appreciation.

Advancing to Semi-Finals:

Debussy - Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (1894)
Dvořák - Cello Concerto in B minor (1894)
Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition (1874)
Wagner - Götterdämmerung (1874)


Qualifying Round Four will start within 24 hours.

Other than the Wagner opera, I like the other three compositions and absolutely love the Dvorak concerto and Mussorgsky's Pictures. I would rank several other compositions, particularly the Grieg Piano Concerto and the Symphony by Tchaikovsky, as well as Chabrier's España and Lalo's Cello Concerto ahead of the Debussy.


Basically my own favorite four:

Grieg - Piano Concerto in A minor, op. 16 (1868)
Tchaikovsky - Symphony no. 5 in E minor, op. 64 (1888)
Dvořák - Cello Concerto in B minor (1894)
Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition (1874)
