These posts are about music I love (and why I love it). It’s the stuff I want to share.
Malcolm Arnold’s Guitar Concerto
A favorite since I formed my love of classical guitar.
John Adams’s Concerto for Violin
A piece with the pulse and excitement of minimalism but un-minimalist in its continuous spilling of melodies.
I’ve loved this music of Java and Bali for years and have been dying to share it.
Rich, complex, and beautiful — Lamma Bada
I fell in love with this ancient Arabic song many years ago.
This Japanese composer creates a sound world completely different from what we usually hear, but one that welcomes you in.
Morton Feldman’s music
I think he’s the greatest Twentieth Century composer.
He’s my new favorite, after Morton Feldman at least, whom I still adore the most.
