"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 -

All players are asked to not rearrange the composer standings by point totals as it makes it more difficult to check their accuracy and leads to additional errors when boards crash - This is to be done exclusively by game managers - Thanks...

I'm certain I did not rearrange the board. I'm not sure what suggests to you that I did.
It was actually a board crash with positions changed between posts 40 and 41 - At that point of the day, the game was being managed by one of several third party private assistants that I've been relying on to manage the games as I wasn't (and haven't been) here to do so myself.
