  1. Classical Music Discussion
    What are the greatest works of the last 50 years? This can be subjective, based on critical acclaim, or based on some other criteria. (I ask that this not be the place for people to vent their distaste of new music. It’s okay to not participate.)
  2. Classical Music Discussion
    So we all have an understanding of the sequence of events, throughout the 20th century concert halls started programming less and less new music until we reached the state we're in now. Regardless of why this happened composers couldn't rely on their music being performed anymore, there was a...
  3. Opera
    I dabble in opera but try to listen periodically to newer operas. Also, in our 1980-2000 Listening Group we’re talking about selecting an opera to explore. I know and love Nixon in China. I’m wondering which operas you opera buffs feel are worthwhile since 1975? What are your thoughts on the...
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    Hey, I'm curious to see how the community feels about this. In scholarly research and journals, electroacoustic music is generally considered to be an off-shoot of art music starting with Schaeffer and then extending into different directions. However, even when studying music at universities...

    1980-2000 Listening Group - Selection Thread The 1980-2000 Listening Group is forming for the purpose of selecting outstanding works (masterpieces) and then slowly, one work per week, doing an immersive exploration and discussion of those works. Each member of the group will take turns...

    Writing this piece was very funny.
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    I just found a composer called Michel van der Aa. I like him very much. I find him to be interesting because he's a film director too, so when an orchestra is performing his pieces, a film directed by him is in the background. What do you think about his works?
  13. Classical Music Discussion
    Lately, I've been getting a little bit bored and tired of popular music. It feels like my ears need something more than just a repetitive melody and a voice singing in the background. I don't know why I get frustrated for this situation. I've been listening to a lot Messiaen, Ravel (my favorite...
  14. Today's Composers
    Hey guys! I would like to share with you my first piece ever written at the Bratislava Conservatory. It was back in 2012 and premiered couple weeks later by a very talented pianist Julia Novosedlikova. You're gonna hear about her :tiphat: If you are interested in seeing the score with more...

  16. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Igor Stravinsky said of Beethoven's Grosse Fugue: "[it is] an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever." Although it was an expansion of the Baroque grand fugue, to many unsuspecting listeners especially if listened to on its own, it may sound like a very...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    However true or reliable the claim may seem but I like Rihm basely solely on the fact that I heard his Tutuguri once and enjoyed it thoroughly in its dissonant, harsh, brass-ical glory. The first contemporary work I enjoyed. I dislike vocal - especially religious music. Which direction should...
  18. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    I am more interested in LB as a composer for this thread's discussion rather than his conducting. He is perhaps better appreciated and known as a conductor but I would like to focus on his composing abilities. I listened to West Side Story, a contemporary classical piece composed in 1961 (I...
  19. Classical Music Discussion
    What contemporary pieces would YOU personally recommend to the complete beginner? Keep in mind that the hypothetical newbie at hand has never heard any contemporary (or modern) Classical music and your goal is to draw him in, not to alienate him. I realize individual listeners differ widely...
