    Hello! Can you all tell me your favorite contemporary art songs?? I am an avid opera listener and I've been recently getting to know more art songs, but I confess that I know almost nothing of art songs that were composed recently, with the exception of Abrahamsen's let me tell you, which I...

    And by that I mean anything after the era of Schoenberg and pals whom I'm already acquainted with. You can be as obvious as you like, I'm entirely ignorant of anything that came after them. I'm looking for names of composers, particular works, ensembles, conductors. And please no Youtube...

    I came across this interview with composer Julia Adolphe who is having the world premiere of her new violin concerto with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Cool interview on an interesting website called Cultural Attaché...

    Hi ! Here is a French piece entitled 'Quand Je Me Repose' sung by Japanese soprano Hitomi Utamura. Have you ever heard her beautiful voice?

    Hey All, I'm excited to announce the release of my first album titled "Walk With Me". I invite you to come alongside for this instrumental adventure. Although there are no lyrics this album has much to say. I hope it can speak to you in a universal language spoken by all nations. I have a...

    I am currently listening Beethoven sonatas (by Barenboim) and I wonder - what about sonata form in this decade (2010-2020)? Are there composers that are still writing piano sonatas, where can I find them? What are important names? Do they have more than 10 sonatas each? It seems to me that the...

    I've recently been watching movies directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, and I was struck by his taste in music, which is pretty good. In The Lobster there's music by Beethoven, Shostakovich and Schnittke. In The Killing of a Sacred Deer, there's music by Bach, Ligeti and Gubaidulina. And the movies are...

    I have come to think of Franco Donatoni as the greatest italian composer of the 20th century. Yes, I know, Berio and Nono are much more prestigious. And I do like their music quite a bit. But I wouldn't say it is immediately recognizable the way Donatoni's music is. The thing is, Donatoni is...

    With only 1.3 million inhabitants, Estonia hosts one of the most unique contemporary classical music scenes in Europe. It is the country of Arvo Pärt --the most popular living composer in the world--, and of Erkki-Sven Tüür, one of the main symphonists of our time. The first thing that strikes...

    Like many of you, I enjoy both contemporary classical music and making lists, so I was wondering if we could maybe manage to put together a list of great musical works composed very recently, let's say from 2010 onwards. Let me start the thread with some suggestions: 2010 OPERA Wolfgang...

    I have recently discovered the composer Thomas Ades and I found that I fell in love with his Exterminating Angel opera. On top of the originality, I find his style and energy so contemporary and moving. A friend of mine is calling it "original and exorbitant... not enough substance". Please...
  12. Today's Composers
    This is my first non-comment post here, so hello. I'd like to share something I wrote several years ago. I recently dusted it off and made minor adjustments for play-ability and instrumentation, but otherwise I've left it unchanged (which I'm sure the me of the past would appreciate). It's a...

    Opus Overtone has been composing within contemporary classical music. A composition called Vision was released across multiple streaming services including Spotify. It's been hard trying to find a community for feedback and discussion for topics, like this. We beleive that there is a story that...

    When we look back at history, we see that of the composers that were famous in their time, less than 1% remain popular or frequently heard by posterity. So, Beethoven had many famous contemporaries but they're forgotten for the most part. They're now criticized for being derivative or...

    I've just found this video and I thought you will like it! I had never seen it before!
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    I would like to get more information about what's happening in contemporary classical music, but what magazines, blogs or other sources of information is good for this? I know some academic journals - like Twentieth Century Music from Cambridge University Press, Contemporary Music Review from...
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    I grew up listening to rock music and some metal. When I was 17, I discovered classical music and contemporary classical music. After that, I got into experimental electronic music and more avant garde stuff. But as I got into all that stuff, I stopped listening to rock music and all that stuff...
