    I cannot find any SQ of hers dating back to 1826. Can it be 1834?

    Only one work by van der Aa on the list? And a minor one at that?

    van der Aa: Violin Concerto [2014]

    This is an outstanding VC with an incredible amount of energy, rhythm and virtuosity. Listened to it the first time today, but heard good things about it for some time. It lives up to the hype.

    Thank you. Simple error on my part. I've edited the post to correct it.

    van der Aa: Up-close, for cello solo, string ensemble, soundtrack & film [2010]

    A beautiful, tense, expressive, surrealist multimedia work. It could be called half cello concerto, half short film, but these labels don't do it justice. It defies categorization.

    It’s a strange thing, rather good.

    I don't know if it's just me, but the way the two realities interact with each other reminds me of a David Lynch film. I think we should've listened to Up-close alongside Neuwirth's Lost Highway in the listening group a few weeks ago.

    Him and Simon Steen-Andersen are breaking a lot of ground when it comes to integrating sound and image (as far as I can tell, they're doing it independent of one another). I really hope other composers are picking up on the techniques these two are developing because some of their works make for surreal experiences, and I'd think it would be a positive development for classical music if this became a "thing".
