The works on the 127th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works are currently the 7th percentile, meaning that we've recommended 93% of the 6503 works on our list more strongly than them. But we're going to pick some to recommend a little more or less strongly:

This tier currently has 471 works, so I've divided it into 7 parts of 67 works plus 2 more of 68 works. From each part, we'll move the 10 work(s) that get the absolute most votes all the way up to the 125th tier, and the next 30 of them up to the 126th tier, while the work(s) that get the absolute fewest votes will be demoted to the 128th tier.

All the works will be able to move again when we vote on the tiers they land on.

Each participant gets:

+1 votes: as many as you want
+2 votes: up to nine -- but you must have more +1 votes than +2 votes
+3 votes: up to eight -- but you must have more +2 votes than +3 votes
+4 votes: up to seven -- but you must have more +3 votes than +4 votes
+5 votes: up to six -- but you must have more +4 votes than +5 votes
+6 votes: up to five -- but you must have more +5 votes than +6 votes
+7 votes: up to four -- but you must have more +6 votes than +7 votes
+8 votes: up to three - but you must have more +8 votes than +9 votes
+9 votes: up to two - but you must have more +8 votes than +9 votes
+10 votes: up to one - but you must have more +9 votes than +10 votes


I know that on a tier this deep, some or even most of the works must be unfamiliar, but I hope we all have time to try a few new ones, maybe even some works of a sort that we don't ordinarily listen to. You don't have to use all of your votes or listen to all of the works - just let us know which ones you'd like to recommend most strongly.

Voting on this thread will close 14 days from the timestamp of this post, though if I'm late to close it you can still vote until I announce that it's closed.

I will tally the votes on a Google sheet.

Have fun! Also, please bear in mind that someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!

That'll do it! I'll tally the votes, post the results in the main thread, and move the works. Thanks to everyone who voted.

Shouldn't the Grieg composition have been already promoted into the 126th tier via your other thread and promotion experiment from March/April:


I did request a bump in it's ranking in that thread.

It is a fine work, as is most, if not all of the musical output by Grieg. I am a bit surprised it is languishing this low in the rankings. I would probably have it somewhere in my own personal top 30 tiers, but that obviously is based on my own tastes.

That's a good point. I've forgotten entirely about that thread and I need to take care of it.

As for Grieg, I've promoted it two tiers for the thread voting and I'll promote it one more tier for your choice in that thread.

Please don't bump this thread again. If there are more things to discuss, please use the main thread for the project.
