Classical Music For A Modern World

Sure, we play Bach, Beethoven and Mozart — though we also dig the early music of Tallis, chance works by Cage, arias from Verdi and John Adams, as well as the composers on New Amsterdam records. Everything here was released after 2008, too, which is another way of declaring that notes written down on paper are still some of the most exciting ones to hear in all of contemporary music.

    Composers? Written notes? This isn't the place for that kind of talk. Checked out Claire Chase's Terrestre on eMusic -- not a single composer listed -- only Claire Chase gets credit! Who knows Saariaho or Cage; find their works on Terrestre? -- People who designed & run this site don't have a clue or care about composers or written notes, dismissing anyone who does.

    Re: squark, yes it's very depressing for such an otherwise "hip" operation. They really need someone on staff show understands contemporary music as a discipline.

    Terrific to have a station that isn't afraid of 20th Century music. I miss the old days when eMusic thought that a symphonic movement was equivalent to a "song" and we could stock up dirt cheap, but even since that loophole has closed it's an awfully sweet way to shop for classical and jazz records.

    So, what, 4 tunes and that's it? Or do I just get fed back the things I skip? I'm looking for music to work by, and a lot of this is too interesting, or distracting, to concentrate, so I'm skipping, but the skipped tunes keep coming back. Sigh.
