Yuri Bashmet performs Schnittke's Viola Concerto first movement, one of my favs :) composed in the 80s I think:

Now just a minute here. Charlotte Moorman, who revolutionized the cello by playing it bare-breasted, has passed away. Now is this cello piece here more avant-garde than Charlotte or less? I say less, and I don't like seeing the avant-garde run backwards. Please concentrate on more provocative, not less provocative, works, as we march hopefully forwards. Otherwise it is too confusing, not knowing whether the real avant-garde is in front of us or behind us. For one thing, if we keep innovating backwards we may run headlong into tonality, and everyone knows that would be a disaster. For another thing, it is important not to let the bourgeoisie become complacent. We saw that this most likely caused WWI and WWII, and we certainly don't want that again.

Provocative? I'm simply learning about newer music.

Cool thread.  Has this one been mentioned:



Some performance samples here (google for more):

It's very nice, but it falls under the same auspice that the previous choral work did. I just don't get it, at least not yet, it doesn't move me, well it does, to sleep. Thanks for the post though. I'll definitely keep this in mind, and will return to it at some point, I assure you.

I can see that....I heard it for the first time early morning on a summer Sunday while working in the garden.  Perfect.

Definitely an enjoyable piece, not really my cup of tea (I actually listened to his complete violin concertos today). I do enjoy some of the sounds he creates out of that wonderful viola. A bit too 'romantic' (?) for my taste though? Thanks for the post though.

Well that does indeed sound like the perfect moment to hear such a piece.  8)

I liked the Julien Anderson piece Philo. :)

That's cool that you took a Schnittke day today. ;D  I should do that soon, my fav works are the chamber works especially that piano quintet.

Glad that you enjoyed it. It's nice to hear that.

Yeah, it wasn't really my kind of music, but you have to keep an open mind, and just give it time to soak in.

I do want to explore some of his 'smaller' works. Maybe this weekend.

Definitely enjoy both of those. I never really understood why so many people hated on Glass.

Dude, that is pretty rad. I love the sound of a clarinet. It's so full and rich. I also love the mixing of two distinct musical cultures. It sort of reminds me of Schoenberg meets a Kurosawa soundtrack.  8)

The Anna Meredith was pretty fine. Thanks for that. I hadn't heard of her before.

She has a piece called "Lemontits" that Gurn might be interested in. 8)

And Galas is always welcome. Wow.

Well that warms my heart to hear. I'm glad to have introducted you.

I wonder what Lemontits consists of.  8)

I absolutely love Galas.

Bashmet and Schnittke are a killer combination!

Isn't that funny? Wuorinen has a piece Archaeopteryx, too.
