This is an incredibly casual game where you come and go as you please (and it's now become my favorite game.) Listen to one of the works on the last page posted in red, and casually just rate the work (and if you want, the posted recording) 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 (out of 5.) It's casual because you don't have to worry about being consistent or too accurate:

The works you rate as you continue in this game, have more weight than the earlier works you rate.

Our Top Works & Recordings

I'll be posting new works and movements quite freely and at different paces, so just rate whatever works you see pop up on the last page of this thread. You don't need to keep up.

Remember:
  • You don't have to listen to the exact recording posted. Just the work if possible.
  • You can listen to as many or as little works or movements as you want. Try starting with the last work of the thread.
  • Every session is less than 30 mins.
so we have two entries here, not one, and you don't have to listen to both:
Braga Santos: Symphony No 4, Alvaro Cassuto / Ireland National Symphony Orchestra
  • Mvt I & II
  • Mvt III & IV

I'll go 5/5 and 4/5 for these works now. Your first ratings don't matter incredibly, because if you want to repost it later (anytime) the weight should go up.

Here's another choice to listen to:

Mahler Symphony No 9, Otto Klemperer, 1967 / New Philharmonia Orchestra

  • Mvt I - 3/5
  • Mvt II
  • Mvt III
  • Mvt IV

First movement, not my cup of tea at the moment. I'll come back to this one later. Remember you can repost any works later for more weight.

Strauss, R: Also sprach Zarathustra, Andris Nelsons / City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

And remember you can play as much as you want:
  • Rate one 30 minute work/mvt a day, starting from the last one posted.
  • Or rate every work in the entire thread, in one go, for maximum weight.
  • Or everything in between. It's up to you.

I give it a 5/5. Probably not as much development as Mahler, but I'll save that for another time.

I love this game, it's so simple and effective.

I'm going to utilize every number rating, so for now I'll give the last work 1/5.

Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake, Rozhdestvensky, 1969 / Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra

  • Act I, Intro to No 4
  • Act I, No 5 to 9
  • Act II
  • Act III, No 15 to 19
  • Act III & IV, No 20 to Finale

Mahler: Symphony No 9, Otto Klemperer, 1967 / New Philharmonia Orchestra

Mvt II ! - 5/5

Re-add for more points: Braga Santos: Symphony No 4 / Alvaro Cassuto, 2002, Ireland National Symphony Orchestra
  • Mvt I & II - 5/5
  • Mvt III & IV
Beethoven above: Symphony No 7, Mvt I & II - Wow! 5/5

Some of these it doesn't say the date, so I'll leave it up to you.
I found a website with many dates, so I'll be adding them from now on.

Copland: Orchestral Variations / Robert Whitney, 2002, The Louisville Orchestra
