"The Great Composers - The All-Eras All-Star Extravaganza" - Quarter-Finals - Game 8 of 9

The decision to use the word "Great" rather than "Greatest" was intentional - We are endeavoring to express the perception of "greatness" within this multiplicity of composers rather than as a means of identifying and labeling an individual - The intended concept is an attempt to represent and judge those composers who have elevated craftmanship into true artistry.

The Format -

9 Quarter-Final games of 20 composers with the 6 receiving the highest point totals from each moving on to one of three Semi-Final games of 18 with 6 from each moving on to the Final.

The Rules -


1.) You may vote once per calendar day.

2.) You have a total of 20 points to distribute per entry with a maximum of 5 per individual composer.

3.) Play will end with the first composer to reach 200 points.

4.) The composers with the next 5 highest point totals will advance to the Semi-Final round.

5.) In the event of a tie, each of the composers with identical scores will advance to the next round.

Note: You are welcome to comment upon any and all aspects of this competition provided such commentary is directed to this thread -
