The 1820s game begins immediately! There's still time for night owls to get in their first nominations in the ~90 minutes before Amazon midnight.

A reminder: When two pieces are left, one-up two-down voting continues. However you may block your down-votes (cast both against a single work) or split them (one down-vote against each of the two works) as you wish.

Sorry, all. It was an old fashioned collision with Ken , confused by my attributing his post of JN's as his vote. Thanks for the fix.

carnola, I was about to invalidate MZ's vote but let's leave it per your guess. It is no longer subject to correction or revision, and your latest list is gospel.

Ken had left it:

Chopin: Études (15) Opp.10, 25, and Trois nouvelles études (1829-39) - 9
Chopin: Preludes (24) Op.28 (1835-39) - 10
Mendelssohn: Symphony #4 "Italian" (1833) - 4

MZ put "Etudes +" but his resulting list didn't make sense. I'm assuming he meant Etudes +, other works - which gives:

Chopin: Études (15) Opp.10, 25, and Trois nouvelles études (1829-39) - 10
Chopin: Preludes (24) Op.28 (1835-39) - 9
Mendelssohn: Symphony #4 "Italian" (1833) - 3

I add my votes of Etudes +, Preludes - Italian - to yield:

Chopin: Études (15) Opp.10, 25, and Trois nouvelles études (1829-39) - 11
Chopin: Preludes (24) Op.28 (1835-39) - 8
Mendelssohn: Symphony #4 "Italian" (1833) - 2

Amusing story about the Italian Symphony, but can't find the source right now. Schumann wrote an enthusiastic review of the piece mentioning the characteristic Italian melodies, the fine tone-painting of the distinctive Italian countryside, etc. He found out after publication that he had actually heard a performance of the Scottish Symphony...

But I'd better vote, after J Nelson.

Chopin: Études (15) Opp.10, 25, and Trois nouvelles études (1829-39) - 9
Chopin: Preludes (24) Op.28 (1835-39) - 10
Mendelssohn: Symphony #4 "Italian" (1833) - 4

Preludes + / Etudes and Italian --
