I'm new here and this is my second post. I did read a little about on the forums, but I thought it best to make a new thread about my main question, rather than browsing the forums for hours and hours, lurking...
My question is quite simple: what are you feelings towards contemporary classical music? Music written today, or the last 10 years lets say.
I'm a composer and I publish my works, so I'm more than biased to reply to that question, but my take is that the contemporary concert hall scene has some worthy members, a lot of members who are indifferent to me, but mainly it's suffering from autism (for the lack of a better word). You see when I hear professors in universities claiming that 'We are specialists creating for other specialists' I understand his point, but I'd like to disagree. I do not want to start off with that sentiment and believe from the very beginning that someone needs a PhD in order to understand my music, or the music of people like me.
So... Any discussion on that matter? Or perhaps ideas on what we (the composers, the publishers, the active people of the community) should do on that?
