    She is not nearly as famous as she should be.

    Another overlooked female composer from those days: Germaine Tailleferre

    This is so true. I just discovered her myself this past week, have known about Nadia for a long time but never realized that her little sister was the genius composer.

    Estonian symphony with a beautiful harp intro.

    More recent discoveries.

    Robert Hall Lewis

    So far, everything I've heard by him is very good.

    I really like this one:


    I finally decided to bite the bullet and pick up this CD [https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ie=UTF8&psc=1] - I loved it; a really nice blend of Light Music and maybe Jerry Goldsmith-style pastoral movie music. I found it thoroughly refreshing and enjoyable all the way through.

    Ulrich Sommerlatte has a direct prog connection as a member and primary song-writer for '70s German band Ivory (Sad Cypress).

    Another composition (rough performance, but interesting to see something resurrection in 'modern' times):

    Been listening to the new album of Eighth Blackbird a lot lately.

    https://www.eighthblackbird.org/prod...dead-of-night/

    New compositions from David Lang, Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe; all of Bang on a Can fame. I think its an absolute winner. If you are looking for some modern chamber music, look no further.

    I didn't know they had a new one!

    Auto buy for me.

    I kind of think of them as, classical for RIO fans. Seems to me, if one is a fan of avant-prog and RIO but haven't got into classical yet, thes guys should be a good way to test the classical waters. They push a lot of the same buttons as many RIO bands do.

    Albert Roussel Symphony No 1. Pleasant with a hint of Debussy and an overall 'French' character. Good orchestrator. Janowski/Orch Radio France. Had this set for years and plsyed it once or twice if that.
