Adrian Kleinlosen — ...tönend bewegt...
Performed by Ermis Theodorakis
"...tönend bewegt..." by Adrian Kleinlosen for solo piano

I liked this. The way he got such a lot of forward motion out of sequences that had no rhythmic center was quite cool.

I have been listening to Richard Danielpour's Toward a Season of Peace.  I submitted a post about it the "Purchases Today" Thread.

Fujikura seems to constantly be producing masterpiece after masterpiece. Have you heard his second piano concerto, aleazk? It's one I particularly enjoy. His works with electronics are wonderful as well.

I found the following reviews:

http://www.classicstoday.com/review/review-14679/?search=1

http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2009/Jan09/Lindberg_ode11242.htm

The following reviewer did not care for the Concerto for Orchestra but had positive remarks concerning the other works on the CD:

https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/lindberg-campana-in-aria-concerto-for-orchestra-sculpture

Two of the works on the above were composed since 2000: The Sculpture(2005) and the Concerto for Orchestra(2003).  I have just finished listening to this CD again and I really like these works.

For some reason, and I have no idea why, I really am having problems getting into the Campana in aria for horn and orchestra (1998)

Maybe because that horn+orchestra work is 20th century and this is the 21st century music thread ;D

The other two are rather longer pieces, which I tend to prefer. I have found that Lindberg is particularly good at timing in his compositions. The spacing of events and ideas through the course of a 20 to 30 minute work never feels like I am listening to a piece of music for that length of time. More like a 6 minute piece in four times that length. Cool illusion. Makes me feel very immersed.

Ah yes this is a great one which I really admire. I love the gradual addition of instruments in the first few minutes of the piece and this is a great example of his intensely lyrical style.

You reminded me: I meant to post this CD here, because of the Uçarsu, which was written about five years ago. It's probably the best thing on the CD, whose overall title is taken from Glass's quartet, Company. Ironically the Glass is to my ears the weakest component in the CD.

Really charming piece. Lovely timbres. I was lucky enough to be at the premiere of his "Ars Moriendi" last year, at the Festival Mixtur.

Dieter Ammann - "glut" (2014-2016) for orchestra

The swiss composer earned School Music Diplomas I and II at the Academy for School and Church Music in Lucerne and also attended the Swiss Jazz School in Berne.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/pDNyvfoHjdE" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/pDNyvfoHjdE</a>

Ammann took up composing only at the age of twenty-eight. Master classes with W. Lutoslawsi, W. Rihm, D. Schnebel and N. Castiglioni. In course of time, he began liberating himself from serial techniques and subsequently arrived at a freer, more intuitive approach.

Reading, again, about the still notorious system for managing pitches, I suddenly realized that 1937 was 80 years ago.
