Good question.  I love most 20th- / 21st-century composers with the exception of the Minimalist school.  Two of my favorites have recently (or semi-recently) died: Elliott Carter and Schnittke.  So while I still hear their work as "contemporary," they sadly are not.

Of late, I've also been listening to the Ferneyhough string quartet box set (Arditti).

Carter, Schnittke and Ferneyhough. Awesome, welcome indeed!  8)

I like your Avatar too. It reminds me of 'Atom Heart Mother' by Pink Floyd.

Cows are most excellent creatures and their breath is sweet, which is good because that cow is up close and personal.  Viva vegetarians!@#* (forgive the partisan politics, Omicron and welcome).

Ghost Sonata,

Thank you for the welcome.  And I concur about the cows!  Fine and noble animals, and fun as well.  No need to apologize; I am also a vegetarian.

Kind regards,

It's right there in the avatar; perhaps subliminally.  Cows eat grass (or corn); hence all cows are vegetarian.   :)
