Game (round 5/5): SQ+1

1409 Views 46 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Art Rock
Welcome to the SQ+1 game. We have nominated 80 works composed for the regular string quartet line-up (2 violins, viola, cello) with one additional performer.

The game is run in five rounds, and one final. The line-up of the five rounds 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 game ends with the first composition to reach 80 points.
5) at the end of the round, the top three compositions advance to the final (if required, I will use a tiebreaker - the last time there was a difference).
6) in addition to these works, the overall best number 4 will also advance to the final.
7) 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.

Brahms - Clarinet Quintet in B minor - Clarinet
Brahms - Piano Quintet in F minor - Piano

To the final:

Fauré - Piano Quintet No 2 in C minor, Op 115 - Piano
Reger - Clarinet Quintet - Clarinet
Onslow - String Quintet no. 15 op. 38 "The Bullet" - Cello

Takemitsu was nowhere near the best #4, which means that the 16th spot in the final goes to:

Schoenberg - String Quartet no. 2 - Voice

The final will probably start tomorrow.
