    Kagel: An Tasten [1977]

    This is "objectively" a "great" piano piece.

    Having heard almost no Kagel, I thought, "bold claim, what are the chances?" but now that I've listened to it, well, nuts to objectivity, but it's surely a +5 from me when it comes to a vote.

    Glad to hear it! I'm also ready to abandon the word "objectivity"... and maybe even "great."

    Anyways, Kagel is known to most - if he is known at all - as an important avant-gardist, but later in life he wrote a lot of really cool "tonal but not really" works. Trout's list has some great recommendations:

    - Anagrama [soloists, speaking chorus & chamber ensemble] (1957)
    - Transición II [piano, percussion & 2 tape recorders] (1958)
    - Sur Scène [chamber music theater piece] (1959-60)
    - Antithese [play for 1 performer with electronic & enviro. sounds] (1962)
    - Match [2 cellists & percussionist-umpire] (1964) ⋆⋆
    - Music for Renaissance Instruments [23 players] (1965) ⋆⋆⋆
    - String Quartet I (1967)
    - String Quartet II (1967)
    - Hallelujah [film score for 16 voices] (1967-68)
    - Der Schall [5 players on 54 plucked-string, percussion, and wind instrs.] (1968)
    - Staatstheater [opera] (1967-70)
    - Acustica [experimental sound producers, loudspeakers & 2 to 5 players] (1968-70) ⋆⋆
    - Ludwig Van [film score] (1970) ⋆⋆
    - 1898 [children's chorus & ensemble] (1972) ⋆⋆
    - Exotica [non-European instrs.] (1972)
    - Kantrimiusik [pastoral for voices & instrs.] (1973)
    - MM 51 [piano] (1976)
    - An Tasten [piano] (1977)
    - Dressur [trio for wood percussion] (1977)
    - Aus Deutschland [opera] (1979)
    - Vox Humana? [cantata for solo loudspeaker, women's voices & orchestra] (1979)
    - Rrrrrr... [radio fantasy in 41 pieces for various voices & instruments; also arr. for 2 pianos] (1980)
    - Finale [chamber ensemble] (1981)
    - Szenario [string orch. & tape; accompanies Buñuel's Un Chien Andalou] (1983)
    - Piano Trio I (1984)
    - Sankt-Bach-Passion [soloists, chorus & orchestra] (1985)
    - Die Stücke der Windrose [salon orch.] (1988) ⋆⋆⋆
    - String Quartet III (1988)
    - Les Idées fixes [rondo for orch.] (1989)
    - Music for Keyboard Instruments and Orchestra (1989)
    - Liturgien [soloists, double chorus & orchestra] (1990)
    - Serenade [3 players] (1994)
    - L'art bruit [solo percussion & assistant] (1995)
    - Playback Play: News from the Music Fair [radio piece] (1996-97)
    - Duodramen [soprano, baritone & orch.] (1998)
    - Doppelsextett [ensemble] (2000)
    - Piano Trio II (2002)
    - Piano Trio III (2006)

    I think most of the post-1970 stuff is in that tonal-ish vein.

    Yes, I had him down as an avant-gardist only, but "tonal but not really" is the sort of thing that can float my boat. The few later works I've now been listening to on Spotify have proved rewarding so far.
