Quote from: vandermolen on February 15, 2021, 06:15:57 AMHere are two for starters, whose music I greatly admire. Robin Walker for works like 'Great Rock is Dead' which has an, appropriately granitic, monolithic power. (which reminded me a bit of the Icelandic composer Jon Leifs) and Philip Spratley's (great name) Symphony No.3 'Sinfonia Pascale':

I need to prod Robin Walker if he is anything like Jon Leifs, although I listened to his SQ 2 in the car last week, which seemed like the SQ for Silence and Megaphone! I had to do more knob twiddling than a teenager's late Saturday evening with the Emmanuel[le] films.

It's a bit like Angelo Badalamenti/Twin Peaks music with some cool percussion providing spice, a triangle here and there sort of thing. And than percussion stops it from being smug and pompous. Worth a listen - nice ambient relaxing music, with a disturbing edge.

Quote from: Mandryka on February 01, 2021, 03:04:40 AMAnd here's one for starters -- James Clarke -- new complexity maybe, but this guy's got soul and he's got brains. Three recordings, all fabulous IMO, especially the first two
Quote from: Mandryka on October 06, 2022, 12:48:07 AMDavid Gorton is a biggish cheese in the London academic music world, and a cheese of lesser size in the global world of composition. His music I think is made in the "classical music" mode - there's not much (if any) indeterminacy, no unusual instrumental techniques. He doesn't seem to have a strongly original voice: everything is comfortable and familiar if you're used to modern classical music. However, it is lovely stuff, very accessible and a great pleasure to hear. He has a few CDs in his honour, I'm enjoying this one a lot https://www.ram.ac.uk/people/david-gortonI want to add something. The pianist Zubin Kanga, who plays on that disc, is a name to look out for. He's got chops and soul. I'm going to see him in concert in London's Cafe Oto soon, with the interesting and challenging Neil Luck.
