Indeed. Well done!  :) And the Albert Camus hint was a reference to Blomdahl's ballet Sisyphos (which, by chance, as a very young man I saw a rehearsal of in Lucerne in 1975 under IIRC Antal Dorati).

oh, I see, didn´t have the possibility to check the quotes at first, since I just had my mobile phone.

In stead, it will be this experimental composer:

Hint: her most well-known work is an orchestral piece lasting less than 9 minutes and dealing with autumn etc.

Any more clues?

I gather from the paraphernalia in the picture that this lady might be American, but cannot progress any further from there... ::) :-[

Did the Google Image trick. She was quite well-connected to modernist celebrities, including one of your heroes.

Oh! By pure chance, I remembered that in this CD (which I got for the Boulez and Dallapiccola works it includes)...



...also had  a piece by a female composer with a Polish sounding name (I remembered her given name, Lucia, not more than that). I must confess I haven't listened to that piece, but it turns out she is our mystery woman: Lucia Dlugoszewski...

To Reynaldo Hahn? ? ? ? ?  ??? How strange!  :D

Yes, I think that is a classic and fascinating work by her. Your turn!

OK...here goes.

Who's this fellow?



First hint: these understated clothes bear little relation to his usual demeanour or his scores.  ;)

If he were American, I'd be going against my own trend, wouldn't I?  ;)

At least in Ferneyhough there are clearly recognizable notes. Bussoti's score looks rather like of one of my son's scribblings.  :laugh:

I admit, though, that subito piu intimo can give the violinist a big headscratching, even a big headache.  ;D

Never heard of him.
Did he manufacture biscuits?
