This is the fifth 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 3 selections per day until we've reached a limit of between 64 composers

which will allow us to play 4 Semi-Final games of 16 composers each.

Refer to these two lists -


The Medieval Era

The Renaissance Era

The only name that is excluded from this selection thread is Claudio Monteverdi who appeared in the Baroque Era games.

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