In no particular order
Roberto Sierra
John Adams

Xenakis is more a composer I "like what he does" than a composer I like (does that make sense?)

Michèle Bokanowski
Alice Shields
Beatriz Ferreyra
Andrea Neumann
Sachiko M
Katsura Mouri
Natasha Barrett
Agata Zubel
Christine Groult

Lidia Zielińska
Elsa Justel
Suzanne Dycus-Gendreau

I once interviewed Andrea Neumann for an Italian webzine: she's a very kind and intelligent person.

I haven’t heard enough to do an informed list but am encouraged that most of those I listen to appear in somebody’s top ten. Apart from Harrison Birtwistle and George Crumb - are they not generally regarded as highly?
