    Which ones do you find grating? Is there one or two that you find at least bearable?

    Do you think neo-baroque music is weird, or what specifically are you referring to?

    Very interesting. I think the music is fantastic. I can relate to it. (I listened to several of the links, not all of them yet). I quite like it.

    Many seem to be played on the synthesizer? The composers should try performing the pieces using a period band of gut strung string instruments and Barqoue pitch, say 415Hz and suitable speeds. I think there is a lot of potential here.

    "Neo-Baroque" - I have never heard of that before. This is new music because it is composed today in a style that many people today can relate to.

    Sterile, pointless and vacuous.

    A rather harsh assessment, won't you say? Have you listened to all of them? Is there any one in particular that you would at least say has potential?

    :-) Which ones do you like most would you say?

    I think all of these composers would love their music to be played by real performers. And that would obviously also improve the sound of the compositions tremendously. It's probably just hard to get musicians (especially if the pieces require an orchestra of a few members).

    I quite like the keyboard suites by West. They sound quite French, as if listening to Rameau. West must have studied Baroque music and has a gift for melody too.
