I try to ignore threads like this, and sometimes I fail.

So here's my failing contribution: I did not know that Schumann's works were in competition with each other.

(And what happens when there's a winner? Can there be a winner? Is the adjudicating body a legitimate organization with powers of enforcement? Is there a prize? How does the winning piece, which is a non-sentient entity, collect the prize?

Oh, there are sooooo many questions....)

[Matisse] was interested neither in fending off opposition,
nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot

I think his greatest work is this one, in the original version presented here:

Hey some guy, do you always take questions like this literally, or do you sometimes let down the facade and play nicely with the other children?
