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)

Iím sure not many here have heard any of Ester Magiís 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, 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.


Best regards.

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.

Toshio Hosokawa's Utsurohi for sho and harp (not a combination I've seen anywhere else!):

Thanks Mahlerian, I really love this piece  ;D
