People who haven't heard Beethoven's c-sharp minor string quartet should listen to it.

I've sat down with a single malt and I'm going to do as you suggest right now.


e: I enjoyed that. I think as far as Beethoven's music is concerned, the later compositions are where it's at for me.

“Tell me,” she finally whispered, “is it fun for you to torture me? I should really hate you. Ever since we've known each other, you've given me nothing but suffering.” Her voice trembled, she leaned toward me, lowered her head onto my chest. “Perhaps,” I thought, “this is exactly why you loved me."

Lucia Dlugoszewski ~ Fire Fragile Flight 09:38 (1977)
Chamber orchestra, players double slide whistles, percussionist doubles playing on the harp of the piano, etc.  Lush sound-world, strong and beautifully constructed (form).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cH-HfKTx7dg

Nico Muhly ~ Mothertongue I. Archive 05:47 recorded performance, acoustic / electronic sound sources
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cB46mn8Exd8

David Lang ~ Child viola, cello, flute, clarinet, piano (percussion doubled by players; two conductors.) ca 43 min.  imo a really fine work, perhaps, as it so often goes, more worthy of the Pulitzer than the Pulitzer he was awarded for The Little Match Girl Passion.
V. Little eye 07:23
I. My very empty mouth 13:00

IV. Stick Figure 09:56
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=469MY0tdSno
V. Little eye 07:23
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI0yRXD8tfk

Fulvio Caldini ~ Bestiale, Op. 93 per elettronica e campionamenti (2000)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTAJOBn73GA

Franco Battiato ~ Juke Box (1978) elctro-acoustic, studio recording, six short 'numbers'
His is a pop singer-songwriter / composer. in the early 70's he plunged into making a lot of electronic music This disc is especially far removed from what we might think of as 'pop' songs... a very unique and personal sound, highly communicative and effective, imo.
playlist:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3-ZDxWb_J0&list=PLhQHlPG4E3CxTnnqZ09yS-HFZy_E_GNlJ&index=1

Joseph Fennimore ~ Concerto Piccolo for Piano and Chamber Orchestra (1962) 10:41 totally solid writing, a sense of whimsy and sheer fun
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGC1L48Saow

Early Luciano Berio...
a very neoclassical Petite Suite for piano, 1947
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTE__pthXCo
Concertino for clarinet, violin concertante, chamber group (strings, celeste (1951)
If not serial, damn near, or 'pitch classy' ~ imo lovely magical sounding piece.

Topping it off is the link is a recording of a superb live performance!

I think it seriously formidable, too.  Such intelligent yet entirely 'listenable' music is thin on the ground... always has been, lol. 


Best regards.

Oh cool! I'll admit I didn't hit the links as I thought they were perhaps from the recording of Child by Sentieri selvaggi. But I will definitely check them out.
Thanks, Croche!

I hadn't, but I had a listen to the piece on that video. Interesting and attractive stuff. I've added the CD to my basket.

Yeah, she’s a neat composer, Nik. She draws heavily from Estonian folk music. In this particular work, she kind of has the Bartók-lite (a la Hungarian Sketches) sound with perhaps some Janáček thrown in for good measure. But in a work of hers like Vesper for string orchestra, you can hear some Vasks and Pärt and even some American composers like Copland and Barber in the string writing.

I can hear what you mean by Bartók-lite. And the folk music is readily apparent. Good stuff.

which contains the Symphony #1, the Violin Concertino #1, and the Introduction and Variations for Clarinet and Orchestra

AND...



which contains the Violin Concertino #5, and Overtures #3, ,7 and 10 which are like compact symphonies!

This could become your favorite Wuorinen piece to begin with a veiled reference to the Capriccio italien:

A very slow piece, but for those who like contemporary piano music, I think this is pretty cool:
