I don’t think I’m likely to develop an appreciation for that stuff.

I like for example St Luke Passion (Penderecki) but it’s in Latin so I’m distracted by whatever the **** they’re saying. And there’s Lejaren Hiller as a rare example of a composer who can pull it off but only in a very surreal context.

Pull off? What, liturgy? Arvo Pärt is among the best of contemporary choral music composers whose work is almost exclusively sung in latin -



Contemporary classical vocal music comes in a myriad forms with as many composers. Just have to explore.

Not in Hiller’s case. He does it successfully in an electroacoustic context imo

Francisco Geminiani ‎Concerti Grossi, Op.7 Café Zimmermann (2018, Alpha) Spotify Edition

I'm marveling at how much better the Café Zimmermann recording of this Geminiani piece sounds compared to the St. Martin In The Fields disc. I prefer the playing on the Iona Brown led ensemble but the audio sounds almost muted compared to the more recent Zimmermann.

Earlier this year I really got into Franz Schmidt's 4 symphonies.

And lately I've been listening to the symphonies of Ralph Vaughn Williams.

Have to admit - I've never heard of Franz Schmidt. I'll check him out.

Been listening to my usual copious amounts of C.P.E. Bach. Here's a nice performance of his Oboe Sonata in G minor, Wq.135
