  1. 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...

    A short music composition for strings
  3. Classical Music Discussion
    I'm trying to get a feel for 20th century music, decade by decade. There seems to be a relative scarcity in the 1960's, but maybe I'm just in the dark. For those of you who are walking musical encyclopedias, what are the major works of the 1960's? Thanks, And May the specific Coronavirus NOT...
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    And by modern I mean XXth and XXIth century classical music like spectralism, atonality, serialism, etc. Is there any reliable source of information on this? The classical music guides that I have ignore composers after 1950. I've seen several threads in this forum, but the number of composers...

    Works written and/or premiered in 1959 will be turning the Big 6-0 this year! This is - like - CRAZY, Daddy-O! Cast your votes for any of your faves listed below from the time of the Beat Generation, Darmstadt doctrines, Bohemian cafés, poetry, drugs, interracial love relationships and "Art"...
  6. Classical Music Discussion
    Hello everyone. I'm a fairly new listener to classical music, but the things that have really gripped me (Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev) have done so in such a manner that I can not picture my further life without them. Now I'm looking for something similar to Prokofiev's Concerto no 2. The thing...
  7. Orchestral Music
    What are your favorite unconventional concertos or concertante works? In case it's not clear what I mean by "unconventional" in this context, here are my favorites: György Ligeti - Cello Concerto (1966) Helmut Lachenmann - Notturno (Musik für Julia) for cello & small orchestra (1966/68)...
  8. Classical Music Discussion
    I work in music (non-classical), and after hearing some great recordings by a small label based in Ireland, I offered to help them get attention in the US pro bono. Hence, I'm looking for radio stations and blogs that are willing to dip into modern composition. My knowledge is limited - Q2...
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    First off, I apologize for my English. Second, I am a complete amateur listener (but I've been listening to classical music for almost 10 years now) so I guess many members here are professional performers and composers, academics or have some knowledge with music theory. So please don't take it...
  10. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    I have spent the last five and a half years studying silent movies, and recently created two "needle-drop" type scores for two of them. I know how critical forums are so I am not really looking for "constructive feedback" per se. I realize there are some problems with the scores, and so I know...
  11. Today's Composers
    Sky Pilot (1921) Colleen Moore, King Vidor Director, Music by R.S. Pearson. Music composed in the 1980s and 1990s.
  12. Today's Composers
    Was trying to have a mysterious spiritual feeling to it.
  13. Music Theory
    Can you analyze what's happening in the theory of this music? It says: "4th polytonal #2." Is it using fourths? Is it "polytonal"?

    Do you have ideas in your head about the way a future music will sound?

    You can find out more about him online. Thought I would post a few links. Christian Vander - Hymne Aux Enfants (Zoland) Christian Vander - Offering - Solitude Magma The night we died - L'œil d'aigle Christian Vander solo - To Love
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    (sorry about the title typo, I don't think I can edit it, lol) Probably won't be a big thread, but I'll post it anyway. It seems to me that the more advanced and yet-to-be-heard-by-many ideas in music are not really always in modern music, but in looking at Medieval and Renaissance music...
  18. Non-Classical Music
    Wigwam Fairyport (1971) I understand the album "Being" by them is considered by some their best. Both from early 1970's. Very complex musical yet played in a more pleasant style.
  19. Non-Classical Music
    I would love to find some very good modern organ music, that is very unique sounding, soulful, and progressive. I really don't care much for some Jazz Organ, it's too derivative and it doesn't sound very positive. I like this one: Barbara Dennerlein & Adam Pache - "A Summer Day" in Larino -...
  20. Today's Composers
    Greetings, I've been on the board about a year but haven't introduced myself as a composer. Been composing since childhood, just "improvising" like most musically precocious kids do and then writing on paper starting around ten. Like many here, I didn't go to music college but kept composing...
