Interesting short (20 min) talk by Shulamit Ran

https://vimeo.com/193576495



Also, My interview with Alexander Schubert.


Schubert’s interest explores cross-genre interfaces between acoustic and electronic music, combining different musical styles (like hardcore, free jazz, popular electronic music, techno) with contemporary classical concepts. Schubert has participated in his youth and early career in the above-mentioned genres both in groups and as a solo artist.

Some recent profiles/interviews with young composers creating some good music:

Marianna Liik : a sound world that is created by combining the acoustic and electronic means of expression

Timothy McCormack : music on a geologic scale

Nomi Epstein : compositions centering around sonic fragility

And one with an established composer:

Richard Barrett : creating meaningful alternatives to what we hear around us

Cut and paste of two recent posts to the main Listening thread. Putting them here since the music definitely fits here:. all the works on these two CDs date from 2010-2015. As a general category, all of them are basically tonal, no electronics or other addition to the basic orchestal instrumentarium.

Speculation prompted this purchase.
I like it...but I'm not sure I would recommend this to anyone.
Ritter thought the little he had heard of this composer suggested an epigone of Rodrigo.  The Spanish composer I thought I heard echoes of is De Falla, mixed in to the generic neoRomantic composers of the late 20th century. There is little to cue the listener in to the fact the two works date fron 2015 and 2011. I think a number of GMGers would be pleased with this CD, and a number of GMGers a bit bored.  I intend to get more of this composer, but the rest of you will just have to decide for yourselves.
Another first listen to stuff never heard before


Generally good. The soloists are the principal chairs of their respective sections of the Nashville Symphony.
Contents
Frank Ticheli Clarinet Concerto (2010)
Brad Warnaar Horn Concerto (2015)
Bezhad Ranjbaran Flute Concerto (2013).
I liked the Flute Concerto best on first hearing. The composer was born in Iran, but has lived and studied in the US since 1974, when he was 19.
