Thanks all, nominations are closed. Voting round in a bit...

John, you're too late, sorry. But the Dvorak is already on the voting list.

Well, since you can't second the 7th... Frankly I'd second the 5th but by my next turn we'll be done.

Should I second Sibelius 5? I really think the 7th is the more "Transcendental" of the two. But then, if I won't, there will be no Sibelius in the voting list...

KenOC says:
Got Sibelius 5 (finally), thanks. Note all that Sibelius 5 is waiting for a second.

Reich has already been fixed and is on the voting list.

Reich is listed twice btw.

I previously nominated Sibelius 5, don't see it in the nominated list.

Thanks,

Ken: I think Brahms Clarinet quintet has already been seconded as well, so you can include Ahmad's four seasons too (if he is not just kidding, that is). Ahmad, why kidding? after all, Handel Concerti Grossi has been nominated, and they are just as (NOT!) "transcendental" as the four seasons :-)

KenOC says:
Ahmad, two pieces total, please. I'll take your first two as your turn unless you say otherwise. And since Mozart's Requiem hasn't been nominated, that's a nomination.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 8:57:39 AM PST
Ahmad says:
I second Mozart's Requiem and Brahms' Clarinet Quintet. I nominate Vivaldi's Four Seasons (I am not kidding)

WH: Schubert and Bruckner are Austrian, Mahler is Bohemian, Debussy and Messiaen are French, Sorabji (god knows how he made THAT list) is Indian or Persian, I dont remember, but surely not German... The most glaring omission is no Russian. Personaly I would love to see a certain Finnish composer in the list too ;-)

Nominate:
Dvorak: Symphony #9 in E minor, op. 95 ("From the New World")
Bartok: Concerto for Orchestra

Looking at the current voting list, it appears that only Germans provoke transcendental exaltations (only one French work? only one American work?).
