Not sure why Tippett's seriousness is being remarked on. I think the dissonance or harshness is part-and-parcel of most modern composers... Rihm, Julian Anderson, Sallinen....

If you are interested in listening to orchestrations of solo/chamber music, you might be interested in this thread. Feel free to contribute and make the list grow!

Merely in the same vein that we do with other composers, I guess; a reflection on how his music feels. I am a big fan of Tippett, as with PMD and Robert Simpson, but it is worth noting that their beauty and worth is unlike that of Vasks or Silvestrov. My stamina for Penderecki is different to my back to back patience with Thomas de Hartmann. Both are wonderful, but not equal in their emotional or technical challenges 🙂
