Welcome to "The Great Composers" - The Baroque Era - Semi-Finals - Game 1 of 4

The decision to use the word "Great" rather than "Greatest" was intentional - We are attempting to express the perception of "greatness" within a multiplicity rather than identified and represented by an individual - The intended concept is an attempt to identify and judge those composers who have elevated craftmanship into timeless artistry.

The Format -

Five separate groups numbered 1 through 4, each of which contains 16 composers, competing in Semi-Final rounds with the top 5 from each - then advancing to a Final of 20 composers.


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 100 points.


4.) The next 4 highest totals will then move on to the Final



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


This particular thread is reserved exclusively for game play.

Allow me to once again welcome you, to thank you for your participation, and to wish your favored composers the very best of luck during the course of these competitions.

Do people realize that Albinoni's famous Adagio in G minor wasn't written by Albinoni?
