… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948

Just joined as the forum was mentioned over at Talk Classical, thought I'd forage around a bit. Just joined 5 minutes ago, but looks interesting.

Hello Papsrus,

Welcome aboard.
If you're interest lies in 'not so wellknown' or 'not known' composers then you are on the right address.
If you like to do so, tell us something of you're musical taste. So we might be of help. Or you can help us.

Thanks!

Classical music is an area I'm just now really sinking my teeth into, coming from a jazz or improvised music background. There seems to be some crossover with music written for traditional classical instrumentation, but which incorporates some non-traditional structure -- whether fully scored or improvised.

Anyways, I'm listening to a lot of the very well-known composers of traditional classical repertoire; romantic period; some so-called second Viennese school stough. But I'm basically bumping around without much direction as far as more modern or post-1900 music goes.

For instance, I was looking the other day for a concerto or some chamber music that features saxocan't-tell-you -- the John Adams recording "City Noir," which includes a saxocan't-tell-you concerto, looked interesting. But I'm not sure it's quite what I'm looking for.

The Boston Modern Orchestra Project, the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, and similar small-ensemble stough seems worth exploring, but I've no idea where to start there, either.

I'll throw out a few names mentioned elsewhere that may or may not be not well-known here that I'd like to explore, but not sure where to start: George Walker, Frederic Rzewski (strong sense of melody, from what little I've listened to, but spins those melodies all over the place in exciting ways), and I just listened to a really nice clip of the Haba string quartet with piano performing Bohuslav Martinu -- excellent. Can be viewed on YouTube here: .

So all in all, I don't know what I'm doing, which is kind of a nice place to be, really. But I'm interested generally in listening to modern music that takes the traditional repertoire and pushes the envelope. (Sounds trite, but there you have it).


I need to noodle around here a bit to get a sense of things.
