No 7 seems to be a tricky one. If I was you I'd look away from the string writing, and concentrate on a modern composer who uses arpeggios so heavily... ;)

Saul?

#7 -- Glass is known for his arpeggios too, but I don't think this is him.

Appears to be an Italian. I would say Dallapiccola, but I don't know of any orchestral works by him that use BACH.

Still waiting for an answer on my #20. Hint: it is not Glass, Saul, or Scelsi.

Blimey, Mark, you are good at this!

'Yes' on the Nancarrow - that one at least I think is fairly straightforward. It's Study no 37 if you're interested.

No 7 isn't Italian, actually, but 'yes' also on its use of BACH. To be fair, I hinted at it somewhat when I said that there where two clues as to the piece's title in the string parts! One of them is indeed 'Bach'. Now tell, me, what animal do you think those string parts sound like when played all together.....? And you have your title (nearly)

To guess purely from your hints, Luke . . . If Bach Was a Beekeeper . . . ?

Henning comes from nowhere and steals it! Correct. By Arvo Part, of course. An interesting halfway-house of a piece.

#12 is Xenakis?

I say this only because it's in Greek. The use of quarter tones rules out Theodorakis. I don't know of any other Greek composers.

Yeah, right. Could 6 be from one of those late Modern Psalms Schoenberg wrote? And is 10 by Scelsi.

No, no 6 isn't late Schoenberg, but a more formative piece. You are correct that it is a vocal work, though that is not evident on this page. And the Scelsi one is not no 10, which is, however, a piece known to you.... ;)

to sum up the answers to my questions so far:

1 - ?
2 - ?
3 - Feldman - Why Patterns (Mark)
4 - Khachaturian - Piano Concerto - (Mark)
5 - Ferneyhough - ? - (Larry)
6 - Schoenberg - ? - (Larry)
7 - Part - If Bach had been a beekeeper - (Karl)
8 - ?
9 - ?
10 - ?
11 - ?
12 - Xenakis - ? - (Mark)
13 - ?
14 - ?
15 - Nancarrow - Player piano study (37) - (Mark)
16 - Tippett - 3rd Symphony - (Mark)

2 -- Götterdämmerung, the very end (while Valhalla burns)
3 -- Holst: Jupiter from the Planets
5 -- Liszt: Sonnet of Petrarch
6. -- Schoenberg: Pierrot Lunaire, Heil'ge Kreuze (well, the text is right there, for heaven's sake)

Greg, that is very interesting - I can see how you could be led in that direction. Actually it isn't spectralist. If you look closely you'll see that there is a clear process going on, so Ligeti wasn't a bad guess either. This composer developed a very strong and personal process technique later, though not precisely this one.

wow, you're really making me think here....
i should just pull out a bunch of names  >:D
umm...... i'll take a wild guess- Schnittke?

12- Xenakis, Oresteia

Correct  :)

Re. no 6
Jakobsleiter?

Correct  :)

That leaves 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13 and 14, and clarification of which Ferneyhough piece is shown in no 5


And someone get Larry's no 20 soon - here's a hint: it isn't Webern. Not quite.
