I'm trying to start a death match poll here. We'll start with the Beethoven String Quartets. Pick your favourites.

The poll runs for 7 days.

Thanks.

We'll see how this plays out.

Anyone is welcome to start a second match. We'll pit the winners against each other.

I've cast my votes in both. Should be an interesting match up.
I may start another on Monday. We have a few days to iron out the ground rules. I was thinking maybe do chamber works against chamber works, symphonies against symphonies, etc., intially, and then work into some kind of free-for-all. :D

It will be interesting to see the results! :D

you should've probably grouped them into somewhat equaly sized groups. people will tend to vote for the group that has their favorite quartet in it, and that is more likely for the groups with more quartets. I voted for the late ones, no mateer how you'd group 'em, they'd be clear winners for me.

I grouped them as they were commonly grouped on various internet sites, particularly Wikipedia

I suppose I could have match between the individual quartets within the winning group. I'll give that some thought.

The first of the 'Death Matches' has ended.

Beethoven's late string quartet's have come in handily as the winner.
