Music of the 20th, 21st century


Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow composers!

Each year since 2001, ABC Classic fm (Australia's leading classical, jazz and world music station) have hosted a classical music countdown of the top 100 pieces of music voted by the listeners. Each time the 'Classic 100' is on there is a different genre that the listeners have to vote music for e.g. For the Classic 100 chamber music you would have to vote for your favourite piece of chamber music. This year the theme is music written in the 20th and 21st century.

I am pretty sure on what music I might vote for (Michael Nyman's MGV or Hugues Dufourt's l'Asie d'après Tiepolo) but I am quite curious as to what other people's favourite contemporary pieces are which might make me discover some new music that I might like better.

And? What's that gotta do with the price of rice? I remember studying Ravel's string quartet when I was 12, and I'm 12 now :P

I don't mind how old you are. But telling your heard something 1 year ago or 14, is quite a difference. So I wanted to make that explicit, I wanted that clarified. c'est tout... :)
