Boulez

Even Pli selon pli?

I don't know if I actively dislike any composer.  Sorabji may come closest, but I don't actively dislike his work so much as find its absurdity amusing.

Funny to think it now, but at first the symphonies of both Nielsen and Vaughan Williams left me cold. Musical dislike is not forever.

I would think that it would be... the Antartica symphony that would leave you cold.  Badum ching! 8)

Quite true. I was rather indifferent to Penderecki, Gubaidulina and Schnittke at various points. Proud to say this has past!

I appreciate the sober, measured remark, which is entirely in character!
