Ginastera - Estudios sinfonicos

Another masterpiece.

The world knows Ginastera mostly from his early ballets Panambi and Estancia, which he wrote in his twenties. It's a shame, really, since he's one of the few composers from that period who actually moved on with the times, and his most radical works are not played as often.

Roberto Gerhard would be another example.

Georg Friedrich Haas - Limited approximations

Heard this on the radio for the first time yesterday (NDR Kultur, Germany): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoqvGLdjUhE (Edit: URL corrected)

Immediately ordered this CD then: https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/classic/detail/-/art/Donaueschinger-Musiktage-2010/hnum/1700344

[quote="scherbe2003"]Hereís one that keeps spinning in my CD player: Elliott Carter, Late Works
https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8339488--elliott-carter-late-works

Cheers, scherbe2003, for the tip on Carter. I have several recordings of his music (mostly orchestral and chamber music on Nonesuch), but I did not have that recent recording of his late works. My ZINY order hasn't arrived yet, so I've been listening to that Carter CD this weekend instead. And it is, indeed, a *fabulous* collection of his late music. Really.

Just want to tip my hat to posters in this thread, which is relevant and informative 7 years, still going. Admittedly, I forget some of the recommendations in here and I revisit them, plus the new ones. Thanks, all.

For me it can take a long time to explore a composer or even a piece so while I may be quite I do enjoy all the input

Glad I could be of help! Smile To me, the Carter CD is my real big CD discovery in 2018. (In fact it came out in 2017, I believe, but I didn't know then.)

Finally picked up the first recording of Ginastera's Popol Vuh:
https://www.amazon.com/Stravinsky-Haydn-Ginastera-Spring-1993-01-12/dp/B01KBI1RDO
I like the recording here, the rougher, filmic nature is well suited.
Sandwiched between Hayden and Igor tho', it is not as impressive.

PS::::
I posted this in the ALBUM thread yesterday. Thought those attracted to this thread would be interested. I thought it was cool as heck:

Other fun facts found in the liners [of the Recent Musical Prophet, Eric Dolphy release]:
Dolphy visited Varese in Greenwich Village and among ED's effects was a score
signed and dedicated to Dolphy by EV. I am guessing EV dashed out Density 21.5 and presented it to him. Just a guess.

I found this video about twelve tone music very entertaining.

I'm coming to the end of my obsession with it, but can anyone point out any 20th century compositions that sound similar to Naval Aviation In Art?, including its intensity. I've listened to bits of Schoenberg and Webern and while the harmonies can be similar they don't quite have the incessant balls, or if they do the bass notes/harmonic world moves around too much, whereas NAIA has a lot of continuity under the dissonance.

Maybe try Charles Ives' "The unanswered question", of which Zappa's piece sounds fairly derivative, or Yves Prin's "Dioscures".

Thanks for that Ė I loved the Yves-Prin and itís rare for me to have a strong positive reaction to contemporary music. Itís probably the pedal drone that ties everything together, along with keeping a sense of melody that a lot of modern music seems to discard for whatever reason. Nicely built up too, although that applies more to the opening section than the whole piece.

Iíve been following a contemporary composition channel for the last few months https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZkBfgFnWZdr2Kcsgcjba4Q and while there are a few gems in there a lot of it is very samey, the same lack of regular pulse, lack of any kind of consonant melody or even consonant interval from note to note, wide leaps rather than scalar intervals, sometimes barely any discernible pitches, makes it very difficult to enjoy (rather than just appreciate). It was hard for me to pin down, but a lot of it sounds like the soundtrack for a humourless Warner Brothers cartoon.

This one was great though, Iíve heard a few pieces by this composer Eric Wubbels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtCOUdiM0fk and if you look at the Playlists for that channel there are some good works in there too.

Guess I should really read through this thread from page 1, huh. :)
