    Odd that you voted that since I have heard of Lera Auerbach for the first time thanks to you.

    A short piece: one of Auerbach's Preludes, performed by a 9 year-old.

    You know what would be funny? Make a poll of fake modern composers and see how many people pretend to know their music. Hilarious.

    I don't know anyone here that would do that, except maybe Stirling, and I'm not sure what you're implying.

    My top 3 of these great 14 would probably be: Cerha, R. Barrett, Spahlinger.
