    Pablo Marquez plays "Calvario" by Zad Moultaka. This is pretty amazing! Written in 2008 for guitar and fixed sounds.

    An album of Dodecaphonic String Quartets - The Ars Combinatoria String Quartet
    https://erikcarlson.bandcamp.com/alb...tring-quartets


    Two very short string quartet works. Dieter Schnebel's Stücke (1954-55) is a pointillistic Webernian piece. Eva-Maria Houben's Nothing More (2019) is restrained but uses various styles in the 5 movements lasting for just 5 min. (Here is the score PDF.) The group recorded Babbitt's string quartet no. 2-6, which are very good too.

    These recordings are not available as CDs; they are digital files only.

    Yes, but lossless files such as FLAC and WAV are available and all the digital releases of Erik Carlson are worth checking out, IMO: (almost) complete string quartets of Babbitt and violin works of many contemporary composers.

    I've been listening to some Kaija Saariaho albums, not having done so for some time. I've already decided to purchase the recent Jennifer Koh cd featuring Graal Theater. I'm also revisiting an older disk featuring Graal Theater, Solar, and Lichtbogen (Ondine); It seems less polished, but all the works are attractive.

    "Hommage a Penderecki" (with Anne-Sophie Mutter)

    2 new works, La Follia for solo violin and the Duo Concertante, combined with reissues of the 2nd Violin Sonata and "Metamorphosen" Violin Concerto.

    Amazing 2-cd set.

    Bartók, Eötvös & Ligeti: Violin Concertos - Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Ensemble Modern, Peter Eötvös (Naive)


    I am listening to Eötvös lately. A very unique composer, I think.

    Actually, the 2nd Violin Sonata is the only work of the four not to be a reissue, it was recorded specifically for this release. All of the other works have appeared on Mutter's CDs previously!

    You're right--well, better late than never on my part!

    Thumbs up Phillip Glass Symphony #10

    In a recent issue of BBC Music they had a recording of Phillip Glass's Tenth Symphony. I really enjoy his more recent work as compared to his earlier music. The wind parts are so good at times I think I am listening to a band work.

    (David Matthews [1943] - symphonic poem "Music of Dawn").

    Groundbreaking? No. But I like it a lot.

    I know everyone on my ignore list would consider it noise.

    I like it as well. I have heard the name many times but I have never had the pleasure of hearing his music. I will have to check out his other works. Thanks.

    I played this CD (I have a number of CDs by this composer). The third work on it, A vision and a journey, is very rewarding as well. This CD would be my recommended starting point.
