Welcome to "The Great Composers" - The Classical Era - Semi-Finals - Game 4 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
