I spent some time today just randomly browsing tracks on recent Donauesingen Musiktage recordings - 2019, 2018 . . .And it is oh so depressing, I mean I’ve heard it all before so many times, nothing fresh. And then suddenly, out of nowhere, comes a composer I’ve never even heard of with a voice of his own - Eivind Buene. Not on YouTube but streaming on the usual platforms, this is interesting music, no doubt about it.

Do you know Matthew Shlomowitz ?

At the Donaueschingen Musiktage 2019, his work for keyboards and orchestra was absolutely crazy !   ???

Aaron Cassidy: Second String Quartet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd6B5zLaHiU

The JACK Quartet performs the West Coast premiere of Aaron Cassidy's Second String Quartet for the Monday Evening Concerts series on February 14, 2011 at Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School.

 :)

I am rarely disappointed with the JACK Quartet... They are great.

Are a lot of them doing “Avant-Garde” things that had already been done fifty years ago?

Well this is the 50th anniversary of Stockhausen’s Mantra - no-one’s doing anything remotely like that at Donaueschinger at least!

When at the end Matthew Shlomowitz get up on the stage under the boos, it's a real moment of glory  :laugh:

I especially like this record of him on All That Dust record label and also with Mark Knoop...
