Quote from: Discobole on February 19, 2012, 01:24:38 PMOK no problem. So there are 2 groups to listen until next Sunday at midnight (Paris time), but if you need a little more time it will not be a problem. One has 5 versions, the other has 6. There are 2 excerpts to listen to.All I need is a ranking of the versions. Ex aequo is possible so you can have two firsts, or three thirds, etc. Then I'll use the Condorcet system, which will allow me to establish the global ranking (in case of Condorcet paradox, the mean ranking will count).mc ukrneal & madaboutmahler, you are in the yellow group (5 versions).DavidW, I put you in the red group (6 versions).You'll receive the informations in a few minutes by pm.If you have time I can give you the other group too, of course, just tell me.You will hear very important differences of sound quality, due to the age of some of the interpretations. Please try as much as possible to judge the quality of the playing and of the interpretation, and not only on audiophile criteria If Bernstein, Karajan and others were eliminated in the first round, it is not by mere chance, I guarantee you great surprises !Anyone can join the listening until results are published. For that second round, until next sunday, then.
Quote from: madaboutmahler on February 21, 2012, 08:22:01 AMListening to the 'yellow group' now. Really enjoying myself and remembering how much I love this piece! Could you also send me the red group as well please? I should have time to post the yellow votes this evening, and the red votes tommorow. Thanks again.
Quote from: mc ukrneal on February 21, 2012, 08:32:00 AMVery intersested to hear your opinion of the yellow group, having already posted mine. I won't get to the red group until later in the week, but I think I will be able to post on them as well. Really interested to see how our opinions will compare to the other forum too.
Quote from: Lisztianwagner on February 21, 2012, 08:37:42 AMThe excerpts are FLAC files, yesterday I downloaded a programme to open them; I will provably listen to those pieces this evening, I adore Schumann No.4 very much!
Quote from: mc ukrneal on February 21, 2012, 08:57:41 AMYellow group was all mp3. Is there a Flac in the red? I haven't downloaded those yet.

Quote from: Discobole on February 22, 2012, 03:09:44 PMThanks ! Would you like to listen to the Reds too ?7 participants gave their vote in the Yellow group, 5 votes are expected until Sunday. So, here are the trends...Two versions (A5 and C3) are perfectly even at the first place. Nearly everyone put each of these among their first three (except one 4th place for C3 and one 5th place for A5). The mean ranking of these two is exactly the same too. It it stays that way, they will both be qualified for the finals.Behind, we have another perfect equality between B1 and C1. But each of these versions could still progress to the finals, as the votes are still very close.If we stay with that closeness between versions, the elimination will be complicated to determine. I have not already decided if the finals will be a selections of 4, 5 or 6 versions, everything depends on how close the versions are in this round : either I qualify the 2 best of each group, or the 3 best, or the 2 best + the best of the 3rds. I hope this is clear.D1 is, on the contrary, quite certainly already eliminated. And this elimination will be SHOCKING .
