The works on the 24th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works are currently the 96th percentile, meaning that we've recommended only 4% 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 15 works, and we'll move the 5 work(s) that get the absolute most votes up to the 23rd tier, while the work(s) that get the absolute fewest votes will be demoted to the 25th 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: one, but only if you have a +1 vote
+3 votes: one, but only if you have a +2 vote
+4 votes: one, but only if you have a +3 vote
+5 votes: one, but only if you have a +4 vote


Voting on this thread will close 5 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 be considerate! Someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!
