    But more seriously, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco is a composer whose music I personally enjoy a lot and probably would be nice to see in live orchestral concerts. Typically his [guitar] music seems to be performed more in guitar recitals. He seems to be someone whose name is at least vaguely known by many classical fans, but not performed so much.

    I don't mind the lyricism of the Chin piece, but into it 8 minutes, I fear this is a piece where I don't like how it resolves. Compare it to Bolcom's Violin Concerto which does have a fairly mainstream acceptance and you can see he has both the modern lyricism and the tried and true sense of resolution, of the piece going somewhere. I will have to listen to the Chin piece a few times to figure out if I like it or not. Otherwise, it's a bunch of beautiful things threaded together but no real story.

    Here is an interesting example of concert programming juxtaposition, and one that I think works quite well...
