Quote from: Henk on August 07, 2008, 12:58:17 PMWhich composer in 20th / 21th century can really compete with Shostakovich and Prokofiev? What are recommended cd's?
Quote from: some guy on August 07, 2008, 01:39:08 PMWhy "compete"?Other worthwhile composers include Denison, Gubaidulina, Ustvolskaya, Tarnopolski, and Artemiev.And I not only acknowledge my ignorance beyond these (and Schnittke and Stravinsky, who've already been mentioned) but gladly parade it in hopes that people like tab (on the other Russian thread) will help me diminish said lack of knowledge. Diminishing a lack. I quite like that.
Quote from: Christo on August 07, 2008, 03:24:56 PMDefinitely Alemdar Karamanov (1934-2007), whom we lost last year. BTW, he was partly a Crimean Tatar - is that a problem with you, Henk? For his work, see: http://home.wanadoo.nl/ovar/karamanov.htm
Quote from: Henk on August 07, 2008, 03:32:16 PMInteresting, never heard of him.
Quote from: Christo on August 07, 2008, 03:36:01 PMRight. In that respect, he resembles Petrassi, probably ... 0:)
Quote from: Henk on August 08, 2008, 04:02:18 AMI listend to samples, but it didn't appeal to me. For russian music I think I'll stick to Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich.
Quote from: Henk on August 07, 2008, 02:13:27 PMI used the word compete, but don't put too much weight on it.
Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on August 08, 2008, 07:19:52 AMFor something really appealing, have you tried the symphonies of Borodin and Balakirev? I love all of them but have a special soft spot of Borodin's 2nd. These are melodic, terse works along the lines of Tchaikovsky minus some of the emotional draining moments. They may not be "deep", whatever that means but I think they are fantastic. For whatever reason I can't get into the symphonies of Rimsky-Korsakoff. To me his symphonies never approach the genius he showed in Scheherazade, the Capriccio Espanol or the Russian Easter Fantasy Overture.
