    I appreciate all the support, guys. I really want to try to get back to this at some point in the near future. Life has been really busy the past month or so and will continue to be probably until the holiday season. But I hope that you all continue to show your enthusiasm for contemporary music both in this thread and on the forums. I am always interested in finding new names to explore and blind spots to uncover. I hope that we ultimately help create a contemporary music repertoire (not just referring to this project) that is as large, diverse, and informative as possible.

    Thanks a lot.

    I found a video of La Monte Young's elusive Just Charles & Cello in the Romantic Chord! There's a Wayback Machine archive of a taken-down YouTube video from 2011.

    I'll definitely be hearing this soon.

    Happy holidays everyone.

    I'm just bumping this to announce that I finally added a new entry: Peteris Vasks. I myself am quite a fan of Vasks' music, especially his highly recommended Violin Concerto and his 4th String Quartet with its haunting final movement.

    I also just completed the entry for the late, great Giya Kancheli. My personal favorites of his works are his Symphony No. 5 and his Lament, but I definitely plan to explore more.

    I'm working my way through the list and listening to the 3 star recordings. Thanks Trout for all of your hard work.

    Here is the new entry for George Benjamin. It may seem rather short, but that is actually a fairly good chunk of the current oeuvre of one of the best 21st-century composers. Written on Skin is, in my opinion and that of many others, a powerful masterpiece. On the list, he's one of only 4 composers who composed a 3-star work from the 2010s (the others being Abrahamsen, JL Adams, and Haas). He additionally has some of the most recent pieces currently listed. He is a major figure indeed, and I look forward to including many more of his pieces in the coming years.

    By the way, I recognize that most all of his listed pieces are large, orchestral ones. I'm not yet familiar enough with his work as a whole to know if that's just the orchestral bias popping up again, or if that is simply a stronger medium for him (or perhaps some of both). However, if anyone wants to advocate for some of his works for other ensembles, I'd be happy to hear.
