    Default a piece of Programmatic music written in 20th century?

    Hey So i changed my essay topic, on the basis that i thought i was going to run out of time, and kept veering off subject, i will return to that one later on, but for now, i am just trying to get a passing grade :P

    So i am doing it on programmatic music, highlighting a piece of programmatic in each era. For the Baroque period i am using 4 seasons by Vivaldi, for the Classical Beethovens 6th, Romantic Era- Till Eusenspiegel by Strauss, and i Need a good piece to close the essay that was written int he modern/20th century... Ideas?

    And I also have to do another report tonight on the history of a composer, I have already done it on Mozart, Brahms, Beethoven, and Billy Joel (I went through a tad obsession)... Another Interesting Composer anyone? Let me know asap since i have about 3 hours to finish both of these reports.

    Thanks for the help and putting up with me

    Never mind on the programmatic piece, just doing it on Abrams pursuit that did last year and took to state.

    still could use ideas on composers.

    Antonin Dvorak, a very humble life easily researched but fascinating in all his travels and the tradegy he endured.

    Debussy's "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun" ... ? Messian ("Quartet for the end of time")? Avro Part? Good luck!
