Welcome to the "Symphonies 1972-2021" game. We nominated 192 works, which will be voted on in twelve preliminary rounds, three semi-finals, and one final. Selections and line-ups can be found here.

The rules:

1) you may vote once during your calendar day.
2) you have 10 points to distribute, but no composition may receive more than 4 points (deviating from the Bulldog games). Just copy/paste the latest board and add your votes.
3) there is no halfway elimination of compositions with low scores.
4) the round ends with the first composition to reach 80 points.
5) at the end of the round , the top four compositions will proceed to the next round (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference).
6) do not post negative remarks on any of these compositions, feel free to discuss them positively, and at any time you may post YouTube links to their works.

If there is anything unclear, just ask.

This is what I love about classical music (and all music, really). No matter how much you learn and explore, there is ALWAYS more to discover. I've been immersed in this world for most of my life, both personally and professionally, and here is a list of works I've mostly never heard of. Eager to dive in and get started hearing all of these and more.

Anyway, this is just an aside. Carry on!
