    Default Gloria Coates

    :O i am shocked, after looking through all the pages here... (i could have possible over looked her name upon here...)
    that i didn't find one thread on Gloria Coates.

    I absolutely love her Symphony No. 2

    And her String Quartets (i only heard her first 8... she has 11..)

    How about you?

    I've liked everything I've heard of her. It seems her music hits people like the Yanny/Laural effect; some hear nails on chalkboards and some hear jet engines starting up.

    i hear jet engines. :3

    i am currently listening to her seventh for the first time. i am having a hard "time" not paying attention to it.

    (so i kinda sat here with my eyes closed while listening forgetting about the rest of the world.)
    Yeah, the seventh is also another favourite of mine.

    Gloria Coates



    Anyway, interesting composer. I have five of her Naxos CDs, and I like the string quartets in particular.

    Perhaps the 2 threads should be combined?

    Probably, yeah.

    Coates wrote some terrific symphonies. The 14th is my favourite. There is an extraordinarily musical, intuitive sense to how she deals with microtones, glissandi and stuff like that, where I think she makes that kind of aesthetic work a lot better than Haas, who has explored similar ideas.

    Looking at the old Gloria Coates thread, I said the same thing back in 2012. Oh, well, at least I'm consistent.
