i consider that our members do not understand what kind of genius tomas marco is ; the same is probably true for all the previous posts i made so i consider i have given my all to this thread and call it a day from my side; the parasites who will pollute this thread are not my concern

On the contrary, I for one am very grateful that you led me to Mario Prisuelos’s recording.

i still care about this thread, will not post works, but wish to draw your attention to the fabulous pianist ricardo descalzo who made me discover so many composers from various countries. he prefers to work with a prepared piano and include many parts of the piano (body, chords etc..) in his performances. anna korsun (ukraine), jesus torres (spain), agnes magalhaes (brazil), hector oltra (spain), lei liang (china) are some of my favourites. you can find all these nuggets on yt. plse approach all these pieces with an open mind. like Arvo Pärt i like the expression "tabula rasa".

thks for your response arm enthusiast; i think descalzo is the greatest performer alive; nobody in any category is able to transcend a piece and bring it to a higher level; with him an average composer becomes a genius; murail is an all-time favourite and continues to produce works of a very high level; listen to his recent piano and orchestral pieces; i have featured some in my threads; i will start a great thread on contemporary composers early august with the participation of the composers

I think i owe you a few encores on this thread, although i am not a famous pianist.
George Rochberg is simply one of the most fabulous American composers of the last century. Symphonies, String quartets and great piano music should you keep you busy for a few weeks.
He is serialist composer who switched back to tonal music after he lost his son.
In the Partita-Variations (1976) he shows his all, switching from serialist passages (Carnival 4), to a Chopinesque theme (7) and Bach-like passages. I encourage you to to explore his entire piano music.
There are 13 variations. Spotify is a good option to enjoy this music at ease.

It is a privilege to share with you a piano piece by the distinguished Japanese composer Juji Yuasa (1929) who is fairly unknown despite having a large and varied repertoire, including electronic music.
Like Takemitsu he tried to blend East and Western music in a unique synthesis that contains traditional classical elements, but also influences from Webern and Messiaen.
The featured piece Cosmos Haptic II dates from 1986 and is played by the Spanish sorcerer Ricardo Descalzo who extracts magical powerful sounds from his instrument.

Just a note for the piano music lovers to say that I’ve just noticed that Benjamin Kobler has released the first 11 of Stockhausen’s Klavierstücke as singles on Spotify, part of a Musikfabrik series - which has lots of interesting things in it.

I played Dominique My’s performance of Tristan Murail’s Territoires d’oubli last night, I thought it was really special. She’s an amazing pianist really but there seems to be so little solo music on record, unfortunately.

Dominique is mainly an ensemble conductor and she sometimes adds a piano piece by Murail, Dufourt or Pesson on her records; but to my knowledge she has not released any record with only solo piano music, like Marilyn Nonken for example.

I consider that the post from miranna is not compatible with the thread of contemporary music i have tried to build with so many efforts and so many listenings to various works from so many composers; i have requested the administrator to delete this post without a positive response; consequently i will not pursue this thread; i thank all the members who have contributed to this thread

Don't be disheartened. Anna drops in every couple of months, posts links of what I imagine are her children torturing their instruments and looking miserable about doing it, then clears off. It's free speech and just spam for their YouTube channel. Ignore it and move on.
