For some reason the first one coming to mind is Henri Dutilleux.

No wait - Hans Werner Henze! Maybe try his double concerto for oboe and harp first. The Henze oeuvre is massive and a very mixed bag, but if you look around a bit, you'll find compositions that might fit.

Maybe also Peter Maxwell Davies?

Mixed bags, all three of them, but there are certainly treasures to be found in there. Dutilleux is probably the closest you'll get to "impressionism" in post-war French music. Métaboles is a fantastic piece.

For late 20th century impressionist composition, why not try some Takemitsu? Definitely one of the most gorgeous textural composers in the Debussy line, also very influenced by the New York school—-I think I read somewhere recently that FZ enjoyed November Steps quite a bit (and I know Don preston loves Takemotsu)...

Here’s one that keeps spinning in my CD player: Elliott Carter, Late Works
https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8339488--elliott-carter-late-works

Another constant is everything by Stravinsky from Movements to Owl & Pussycat. Movements, Epitaphium, The Flood, Variations, Requiem Canticles etc. are certainly lesser-known works but IMHO among his best.

Otherwise kind of re-discovering early Stockhausen, stuff like Gesang der Jünglinge that I hadn’t listened to since my teens.
Interesting Strawinsky choices. Movements is my Strawinsky favorite!
I have an LP with arrangements for organ and those versions of Double Canon and Epitaphium are among my favorites too.

The good thing with prestomusic is one can purchase single tracks. I need to check that Carter-CD a bit closer.

Great recs. Some of which you guys previously hipped me to right here. Dutilleux and Henze at their best provide some really fantastic listening. I went on a Honneger binge a few years back and need to re-visit. He really struck a chord with me. So the Takemitsu (whom I also love listening to) is what this thread has been aiming for? Impressionism-wise. But what about the Romantic? That covers too much, I guess.

I've been listening to the hits lately. Dvorak Syms 7, 8, 9 (Cleveland-Dohnanyi) and Rachmaninov Syms 1, 2, 3 (Concertebouw-Ashkenazy).
Really like the overall sound of the orch on these. '81-85 recordings.

Which is the organ LP? I certainly never came across that one.

It's largely Stravinsky's dodecaphonic period, which to me has a very special flavour. Just the Variations are such an almost mad work! Whoever can play that properly should have no problem playing Frank's stuff. I just never really warmed to Threni.

Here's an interesting CD that also has the Wuorinen piece incorporating some of Stravinsky's late sketches: 'The Flood', 'Abraham and Isaac', Variations, Requiem Canticles; Charles Wuorinen - 'A Reliquary for Igor Stravinsky' (Knussen, London Sinfonietta)
https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8048540--stravinsky-the-flood-abraham-and-isaac-requiem-canticles

(There is one sketch for 3 trombones and timpani, the trombones playing parallel triplets, semiquavers and quintuplets, the timpani playing quavers, which rather seems to be a sketch from The Flood than a sketch for a new - unfinished - work, this occurs in The Flood somewhere between bars 260 and 270 [I don't have the score with me right now], albeit with different note values, I believe; appears to have go unnoticed so far.)

The Carter CD really became one of my favourites!

Another project is to finally (and seriusly) revisit Messiaen's orchestral work ...

The discussion above really got me interested in Langgaard's Music of the Spheres. Meanwhile got me a CD (Rozhdestvensky) but didn't get to check it out yet.

A little tangental but possibly of interest, by Kent Nagano's book 'Classical Music: Expect the Unexpected' has a March 28, 2019 release date.

I have this one on the Naxos label, which I think I like more:

but I still haven't heard the first recording: Slatkin/St. Louis.

listened to this one over morning breakfast. It was too early to get all worked up, but I couldn't stop. 53'55 minutes later.

Jón Liefs - Saga Symphony (1941-42)

from the gramophone review:
"The symphony typically has an uncompromising, primitivistic sound-world, employing tuned anvils, specially made wooden drums (without skins, hammered by huge mallets), iron and wooden shields, rocks of differing sizes approximating different pitches, and replica Bronze Age horns (or lurs)."
https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/leifs-saga-symphony-op-26

PS per the Popol Vuh above, I forgot that it was supposed to have an all-percussion last movement, but Ginastera died before he put it to paper.
