The Malcolm Arnold symphonies are an acquired taste, but I love them, esp. in these Vernon Handley conducted performances.

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

Excellent.  Bartok, Cage and Carter I'm familiar with, but the others I have very little exposure to - will check them out.  Thank you!

We’re resting between Books right now.  Yesterday Angela Hewitt played Book One for us in a small church in Stratford, ON.  In about two hours we will be back there for Book Two.

Her recording of this music may be the best available but this is better than the best!
