    I would agree with that. I think also that whoever nominated the composer should provide selected youtube examples, preferably spread out over a few days.

    OK. We'll move forward. One thing perhaps I should have done is PM the nominating person about starting "their composer" in the thread. I'll give that a try.

    I've been pretty busy lately. I haven't had a lot of listening time available... I have been listening to the composers but I've been too lazy to post about it much

    Yeah it was too bad 20centerfuge wasn't around for Ades.

    honestly, some composers have a large enough amount of music that two weeks is rather too short to fit it all in, but I think it would be too slow moving to go any longer than that. Twelve composers a year sounds too slow... As for 3 days, i might not even have a single chance to listen in so short a time.

    I guess obliging people to listen to new things is too much to expect...

    Maybe starting a separate thread for each new composer would enliven it a bit?

    I love all the new music I have been hearing so far though. This thread has induced me to explore many great composers whom I wouldn't have otherwise heard in my own aimless listenings, and it has been extremely rewarding for me.

    (I've ordered a couple of Mozetich CDs and am looking forward to hearing them.)

    We're getting close to the end of our list. People can suggest new composers to explore and I'll add them to the list.

    Haydn man suggested that we not linger too long on any composer because interest in the thread dwindles after several days for each composer. We've had no additions to Saariaho for 6 days or so. Some have suggested we keep composers open longer to give more time while others have suggested we move faster since interest dies down. Should we simply move to another composer after several days of inactivity on the thread?

    I'll start Per Nørgård tomorrow. A few items:

    - The threads seem to be winding down. If anyone has thoughts about what might help to reinvigorate them, let me know.

    - If anyone wishes to suggest more Contemporary composers, please do so (we're getting close to the end of our list)

    - There has been some discussion of similar threads for Modern music. I suspect that more people have an interest in Modern composers since they likely are better known than Contemporary composers. If you have thoughts on a Modern composer thread, let me knjow.

    Man I know of a whole bunch. Most of them are American and or band composers. A few of them just passed away: John McCabe, Karol Husa, Steven Stucky and David Maslanka.

    Off the top of my head:
    John Corigliano
    Richard Danielpour
    Michael Berkeley
    Edward Gregson
    Frank Ticheli
    Mark Camphouse
    Donald Grantham
    David Gillingham
    Michael Daugherty
    William Bolcom
    Joan Tower
    Cindy McTee
    Jennifer Higdon
    Adolphous Hailstork
    Michael Torke
    Mason Bates

    Most of the non-American ones have already been mentioned.
    There are a few that I am not mentioning because I know that many of the members already do not care for like Eric W.

    I am sure I could come up with a bunch more.

    Edit: How could I forget John Adams and his son Samuel?

    arpeggio: Could you select one from your list? I'll add that name after Carl Vine. There are several from your list that I enjoy so after I get a name from you, I'll select one of the others to add as well.

    In addition anyone is welcome to suggest another contemporary composer to keep out list going.

    How about Mark Camphouse? He is primarily a concert band composer. I know him. He teaches at George Mason.
