Damn you are one a Feldman-athon!
The last of the Feldman mini-marathon! (My wife is threatening me to cease and desist! )
I listened to some Feldman based on your marathon. Interesting. Sounds like a soundtrack to a mystical/poetic movie by someone like Terrence Malick. Good in small doses, but no way I could do a marathon like you did. PS, any other modernist composers that you really like? I'm already familiar with Steve Reich, Terry Riley, John Adams, Jennifer Higdon, Avo Paart, Messaien, Aho, Glass, Ligeti, Boulez, Webern.
Roger Sessions wrote eight or nine symphonies. All are great, imo. The first is the most approachable. I also enjoy his violin and piano concertos. A younger composer who wrote similar music, but I wish there was more of it, is Charles Wuorinen. A contemporary Danish composer named Paul Ruders is another to check out.
Hi Tyson, I’d add Louis Andriessen, George Antheil, Béla Bartók, Earle Brown, John Cage, Elliott Carter, George Crumb, Mauricio Kagel, Meredith Monk, Conlon Nancarrow, Luigi Nono, Harry Partch, Wolfgang Rihm, Kaija Saariaho, Giacinto Scelsi, Dieter Schnebel, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Pēteris Vasks. I’ve been listening to several Rihm disks this week and really enjoy them.I’d also suggest to keep an eye on Andolink’s postings. He’s far more knowledgable about contemporary music than I. And I have Andolink to thank for the Rihm and Per Norgard suggestions.Oh no ... do I sense a Meredith Monk marathon coming on??Cheers,Lester
