    (Just as a note to myself: some other missing composers with 3 mentions in this thread: Aho, Richard Barrett, Cerha, MacMillan, Sallinen, and Saunders.)

    How do you define Contemporary Music? Strictly speaking it means music by living composers, or the music of our time, or with an easy dating measure, music written since 1970.

    Insisting on "esteemed" works would leave out most that has been written in the last 20 years, since there hasn't been enough time for the works nor the younger composers to become "esteemed."

    Which is the reason I wouldn't participate in this list, even though I am extremely interested in new music.

    That is true which is exactly why you should participate, otherwise those composers may never be put on our radars. This list, while still being selective so far, I hope will be very comprehensive some day.

    Thanks Lisztian.

    I finally got around to adding an entry for Kalevi Aho as a break from the more recent avant-garde ones. Hope this satisfies some 2-year old requests in this thread. His oeuvre of mostly conventional compositional forms seems almost out of place amidst all the modern eclecticism. But a welcome addition nevertheless.
