I know he's not unknown or anything but Messiaen's Chronochomie is a piece that I think you need to hear at least once in your life, at the least. If you can too, UP LOUD!  :D


(If you haven't guessed, I like experiencing the music where I can feel the good vibrations in the air)

I’m sure not many here have heard any of Ester Magi’s music:

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

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/oZI5nIpIUcA" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/oZI5nIpIUcA</a>

There is one criterion of small consequence, where one should I suppose, at least make mention of the stamina it takes to play 'like that' for forty minutes or so.

Whatever effect or point he means to make, for me, the piece lacked anything to hold my interest, and I spot checked through the entire piece to see if there might be more to it than what I thought.  This has me in wonderment that he he has a career doing --- this.  There is not much real difference between this and alternative pop 'neoclassical' Nils Frahm wailing away on the keyboards at something highly repetitive for twenty minutes or more.  I will check other works to see if there is 'anything there' but this is not at all, imo, a promising first intro.


Best regards.

Whatever effect or point he means to make, I found the piece so flat on imagination and so dulling in its choice and use of materials that it is a wonderment to me he has a career doing --- this.  There is not much real difference between this and alternative pop 'neoclassical' Nils Frahm wailing away on the keyboards at something highly repetitive for twenty minutes or more.  I will check other works to see if there is 'anything there' but this is not at all, imo, a promising first intro.

Well perhaps you might find some of his percussion music a little more interesting

Thanks.  I did bookmark this composer to check his other works, a fair amount on Youtube.

There are few band works that I have recommended in other forums that have received some positive responses.  Some of them have been response to member who think all contemporary music is atonal or aleatoric or whatever.  One of the recommendations that has received the most positive results is a performance David Maslanka's Fourth Symphony by the United States Navy Band with Mallory Thompson conducting.  Ms. Thompson is the director of the principle band at Northwestern University and one of the top concert band directors in the United States.

Gift of the Magi, for sure, thanks John!

You’re welcome. I wish more of her music was recorded, though. :(

If you play in the Navy Band do you still have to do other stuff or is that a full time gig?
