I had a go a couple of days ago. About five posts on the cackling,I mean Koechlin thread,in a row. I think I just sent everyone off to sleep. Although posting at the weekend probably didn't help. (Don't tell me Sky Sport is more interesting than Koechlin? How dare you!.............is it?!)
Now then,what was it I was just saying about 'Les Chants de Nectaire'?.............
Oops,wrong thread!

NB: Now I know how to keep a Tournemire thread going. Just keep posting!

NB2: MI's the real Koechlin expert,I'm just impersonating him!

Certainly noticed much mention of Ives probably due to the new disc of the violin sonatas Hahn has just made. I am still yet to fully appreciate/enjoy his music, so maybe I should get this disc to try with his music once more....

Also, due to the enthusiasm of various members - including MI and myself, Prokofiev certainly is getting many mentions!

And deservedly so. For such a high profile,aknowledged great,there's so much of his output that seems undeservedly underrated,or even,neglected.
Keep the recommendations up.

Give it a go Daniel.  I, myself, am not very familiar with Ives' music.  Yet this Hahn CD of his violin sonatas is so beautiful.  I can almost 100% guarantee you will enjoy it!  :)

Will do Ray! :) If I enjoy this Hahn disc then I might try and explore more into his music. :)

If you haven't already, I would seriously read up on Ives's biography. This will hopefully give you a better understanding of where he was coming from in his music. He was completely ahead of his time, but he never severed ties with the past like many composers have tried to do. There is a lyrical warmth that runs deeply through so much of his music. Have you heard Symphony No. 3 "The Camp Meeting"? This may be a good place to start exploring his orchestral music.

Just resurrecting my old thread from way back!

It is obvious as to who's particularly hot right now on GMG:

Myaskovsky
Messiaen

Good idea, it’s an interesting read. I’ve noticed someone’s enthusiasm occasionally spread to a number of other members and have picked up on a few composers from it, so it’s been quite beneficial. :)

Luckily I've had both my vaccines against pernicious enthusisam so it has not spread here  ;)

At the moment, I can't see any evidence of Messiaen being "hot". For me, if a composer is "hot" on the forum, their thread would be regularly on the first page of Composer Discussion for a little while, like maybe a week or so.

Messiaen is dominating the "What are you listening to now" thread.  Has been for the last couple of weeks (along with Miaskovsky), which is why I mentioned him.

I have noticed Messiaen cropping up quite a bit. I'm often inspired to listen to a work or composer after reading posts on GMG but if a composer is "hot" I tend not to get on the bandwagon.

I never really follow who’s ‘hot’ and who’s ‘not’ on GMG. We’re all on separate paths as listeners.

Yes. Hardly anyone shares my music taste. I have learned the more I follow the paths shown by my own instinct the better I do.  0:)
