by far, my favorite: Concerto for 4 Violins & Cello

Those are both very aggressive works, but I wouldn't recommend them for someone starting off in classical music because they're not very approachable. The neophyte listener can be overwhelmed by what they're hearing if they're listening to a complex piece for the first time.

Ironically, they where two of the several pieces I DID start off with in classical music......  ::)

I'd never suggest Xenakis for a beginner. :)

Also ironic for me....  :D

They argue, but can only use the word Stockhausen.

Actually, there is an orchestra strike at the end of Luzifers Tanz  8) 8)
