    I think Bohuslav Martinů is kind of underappreciated.

    A lot of Debussys orchestral pieces aren't played that much either. They are fantastic in my ears!
    Claude Debussy -
    "La Damoiselle Elue" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF4Aa7poreE
    "L'enfant prodigue" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ShjToPSsOM
    "Printemps" avec le choeur initialement prévu (1887) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxuMn8NlPXE

    I have his symphonies, and double concerto which I enjoy.

    And I have the Tilson Thomas recording of Debussy's Le Martyre... which is beautiful. Chalkpie turned me on to that one.

    This version of Les Noces is even more Magma than Magma.

    So this week I pulled out my copy of Kazuhito Yamashita's solo guitar versions of Dvorak's New World Symphony and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite. If you haven't heard this, it is seriously audacious. By the end of the Stravinsky it sounds like he's going to pull the strings right off his guitar. It's not the cleanest thing you've ever heard but boy does it cook!

    Lets hear it for the women!

    There are some incredible women composers from the 20th century and 21st century.


    Joan Tower's "Concerto for Orchestra" is one of the best pieces of the 90's.





    Another incredible composers is Thea Musgrave.





    A recent discovery for me is, Augusta Read Thomas. Everything I've heard from her is great.

    And a couple of more.

    Jennifer Higdon is yet another great composer. Her violin concerto is extremely good.





    Sofia Gubaidulina. Here's the first part of her viola concerto.

    Aine O'Dwyer is an Irish harp player.She recorded improvisations on a church organ after hours, when cleaners and other visitors were puttering around the aisles

    Music For Church Cleaners is the title of these albums.

    “It was written back in 1922, well before Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms made it fashionable or French ‐ speaking composers to strike a monkish pose.
    It sounds like a Renaissance mass lost in time, aware nonetheless of long centuries passing and new horrors unfolding.”

    Anton Webern-String Quartet (1905)

    I recently bought a cd of Webern's string quartets.Over the years i considered getting a cd of Webern's music but never, until now, pulled the trigger.I've occasionally heard his music over a radio station here in NYC and found it extremely tough sledding.This piece is quite approachable.I'm sure the later works on the cd will be more challenging, but this one is quite good.

    Yes his early pieces were surprisingly approachable. My wife's piano teacher was a family friend back in Austria and had very fond memories of him as a gentle, quiet, brilliant man. His death was truly tragic considering he survived the war.
