This is the fourth of the "Great Composers" series of games which will comprise six separate classical music eras -

Medieval & Renaissance

Baroque

Classical

Romantic

20th and 21st centuries - Contemporary, Modern, & Postmodern

Each of the above eras will initially be played as self-contained units in the standard format of Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, and a Final.

Upon completing a Final round for each of the six eras, a combined era series of games will be played in an attempt to determine a consensus.

The rules -

Each player may choose 2 selections per day until we've reached a limit of between 32 and 48 composers

which will allow us to play 2 to 3 Semi-Final games of 16 composers each.

Refer to these two lists -



which starts with Jacopo Peri and ends with Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

and -


No selections before Peri as they will appear on the Medieval & Renaissance series of games and no selections after Johann Adolph Hasse as the names which follow on this list made their appearance in the Classical Era series.


If you're not sure whether or not your selection has been played in the Classical Era series of games - use this list - If the composer's name is on the list, they are not eligible for this competition -



I will provide an updated "List of selections made so far..."

Giuseppe Torelli

Francesco Geminiani


34 selections as of this post - I'm certain that we can reach 48 composers which will allow us to play 3 games of 16, thus we require 14 more... and the selection process will be completed.

If anyone spots a composer that seems to be a dodgy addition to this time period in the sense that they are more "Renaissance" than "Baroque", feel free to bring this to my attention as these lists that I have provided for reference are all over the place.

There are lots more to nominate.
We have 43 selections as of the post above - 48 was the goal as it would have allowed us to play 3 games of 16 - which would have left only 5 open slots but I can stretch it to 64 so that we'll have 4 sets of 16

We'll need 21 more names and then I'll close out this selection thread - If we can't hit 64, I can set up 3 games of 18 or 20.

To name a few, probably more:
Thanks for catching this - As mentioned, I was working with multiple pages open - I think that the page that was supposed to be previewed was actually posted instead - It's up to date now - I started from the first post and worked through all of the rest - It's up to date with the 43 selections made so far and the request made for an additional 11 to 21 if possible.

60 names on the list - Only 4 are needed - As of this post, each player can now only add a single name - Once we reach 64, the selection process will end.

If the choice is between "important, a great one" and "a composer that no one has ever heard of and who will receive zero points and finish in last place" - go with "important, a great one".

Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville
Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer

Probably the top two most important composers of the Baroque era. :devilish:
Yes to de Mondonville - Royer gets tossed - unless someone else chooses him - I set a limit of one selection per player for the last 4 remaining slots in the post right above yours.

61 on the list - 3 more slots open - One selection per player...

John Dowland

I see Dowland as Early Baroque, in spite of Wikipedia. If he's rejected I'd take Giacomo Carissimi instead.
I would prefer to keep Dowland in the Renaissance game as he's one of their star players and I would rather not weaken their side - I'll add the Giacomo Carissimi - Excellent suggestion by the way.

We now have 62 and need 2 more...
