    Just discovered this today (Thanks to LezLee!) ~ a Violin Concerto, "Affairs of the Heart" (1997) by Canadian composer Marjan Mozetich. It is amazing, stunningly gorgeous ~ I think you need to drop everything & listen to this right now!

    I'll be spending the rest of my day listening to whatever I can find of Mozetich on YouTube (while cleaning the kitchen from yesterday's feast!)

    Simeon Ten Holt: Palimpsest (1993) for string septet


    Euphoric. I wish more recordings of Ten Holt's chamber music will be released.

    I had heard Canto Ostinato by Ten Holt and much enjoyed it. I had not heard Palimpsest, and after just listening to it, I found it wonderful. I will definitely look into more works by Ten Holt. Thanks for sharing this.

    Michel van der Aa, Violin Concerto & Clarinet Concerto "Hysteresis" (Janine Jansen & co)

    The violin concerto has a quite memorable opening. The second piece is also interesting, and I like the use of electronics, though I find the static noises at the beginning distracting.

    To-day and yesterday:


    Harrison Birtwistle
    The Tree of Strings (2007)
    9 Movements for String Quartet (1991-6)
    Arditti Quartet [Aeon, 2012]




    Brian Ferneyhough
    Sonatas for String Quartet
    String Quartet No. 2
    Adagissimo
    Arditti Quartet
    [Aeon, 2014]

    This is 'difficult' music which really requires full concentration to appreciate it properly - unfortunately I've not been able to give it that this afternoon. As usual with the Arditti Quartet in modern British repertoire the interpretation is precise and masterful. The Aeon sound is exemplary.

    This is a 3 disc set with much interesting music to chew over - at my leisure.

    Nightshade Trilogy was composed by Poul Ruders over a span of 17 years- between 1986 and 2003. In the composer's words, it is “a collection of compositions that evoke for me an almost Gothic association with pale moonlight, tombstones crypts and the elusive shadows deep inside an ancient forest at the deep of night.”
    In my own words this is just the way I like contemporary music, full of "sound paintings" and surprises.

    Hello! It's me again. Checking out Grammy nominees and Zhou Tian (1981) from China is one, with Concerto for Orchestra from 2016. For anyone not used to 20th century dissonance, this piece must be thrilling to hear! To me it is very accessible
