Didn't know that about Maderna, will have to check out some of his works. Thanks, Friends.


Check out either the three oboe concertos or Quadrivium, to get you started?  ;)

Me's lovey them <3

Quadrivium seems to be the most well known piece; it is especially good if you like percussion, I guess.

although personally I prefer Aura

and Giardino Religioso

Also, something I am surprised to have only just found out considering my enthusiasm for electroacoustic music, he has a sizeable number of tape compositions too if anyone else is interested.

I mentioned the two below works in the Phillip Glass Thread.

The concerto for two timpanists:
