    I'm not sure I know any classical music from the last ten years. Well, that's not strictly true, I just don't remember what any of it sounded like.

    Beautiful music reflects a beautiful Savior.

    Elliott Carter:"Dialogues" (2004), difficult, but probably a masterpiece
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLCceiZl72A
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWQ_XzaAH20

    Elliott Carter:"Interventions" (premiered 2008): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga0NLZTKFeA

    Stretching it to 15-20 years should include

    Nørgård:"Concerto in Due Tempi" (1995) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLCceiZl72A

    perhaps also

    Hosakawa:"Ans Meer" (1999) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LefcS-aaFI

    Other recent stuff on you-t/partly on you-t includes concerti by Hanna Kulenty, Zygmunt Krauze, Sheila Silver a.o.,
    plus, less interesting,
    Philip Glass, Penderecki and Didier Lockwood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvRIN...eature=related

    If you don´t know that of Tristan Keuris, then catch up (1980) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh0jRDHbCcs !

    I like Esa-Pekka Salonen's Piano Concerto, and I have high hopes for Magnus Lindberg's Piano Concerto No.2, which the NYP will be touring with later this season. (Both were written for Yefim Bronfman.)

    Thomas Ades ~ Piano concerto, 'in Seven Days' 2008 - gorgeous.

    Beat Furrer ~ Piano concerto, 2008 (Brilliant and beautiful.)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eVuwGlazcA

    Matthew McConnell ~ Concerto for Toy Piano, 2004 (zippy and pleasant neoclassical style)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bea3eTKN3nA

    Graham Fitkin Curcuit, for two pianos and orchestra, 2002 (lively, listenable 'entertaining.')
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7rAMsLAtkA

    Recalling I'd heard of it-- but have not yet listened,
    Vestard Shimkus ~ Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra ("dedicated to the bothersome man"), 2008
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_se-GwxzcJg
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJpnn...eature=related


    Stretching a few more years back, since ten years is a bit quick for the general motion of classical music's time line and what is relatively 'recent.'

    Régis Campo ~ Piano Concerto, 1999
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRxeb...eature=related

    John Adams ~ Century Rolls, 1996

    ADD: out of the time frame (1980) a shameless plug for any who might not know of it,
    Takashi Yoshimatsu - Threnody to Toki, for piano and strings, a lush and lyric serial piece, his Op. 12, and the last he wrote before abandoning serial technique.

    Interesting list, just been getting into Beat Furrer recently, heard his Klavierstücke and other short piano works, very sparse sound. Didn't know he had done a piano concerto.

    Also Takashi Yoshimatsu's Piano concerto from 1997 just misses the cut but it beautiful, soft elegiac stuff
