Angelo has supplied an idea for a game: Those "transcendental" pieces that represent the absolute summit of classical music and transport us to the Realms of the Gods! Yes, we really need a game to sort through these works, as offensive as that may seem (and in fact is -- otherwise, would it be fun?) So let's do it. Nominations first, looking for a list of 30 if possible.

- Nominate or second one or two works (total), up to twice a day, at least 9 hours apart if on the same day.
- A nomination and a second puts a work on the voting list (must be different people).
- Maximum of 30 on the voting list, at which time the nominating round is closed.

Shall we begin?

There are other works with their own
fantastic transcendental vocabulary,
dedicated to the gods of the physical
elements. Sublime, mystical, and
other worldly.

Nominate:
Scriabin Vers la flamme, Op.72:
