Am a late comer to much modern music, but have loved Gorecki's 'Sorrowful Songs' ,especially the Dawn Upshaw version, for years.
I am looking for pointers to other composers of modern classical music that you may think be of interest; where would be a good source of samples etc, who has moved you with recent compositions? Many thanks
Ooh, glad you like them. I'm always pleased when someone likes my music recommendations. How did I miss Thomas Newman? Isn't it wonderful how wide a spectrum classical music has? From something really chilled like Pachelbel Canon in D to the String Metal of Judgement Day.
