I like some works but not all of the following:When you say 'to the present day' which modern composers do you like (if you don't mind divulging).
You have a wide musical taste. But am I right in thinking you avoid the 'avant garde'?I like some works but not all of the following:
James Mac Millan, Meridith Monk, John Cage, Steve Martland, Toby Twinning, Arvo Part, Gareth Farr, Robert Aldridge, Aaron Copland, John Psathas, Thelonious Monk, John Taverner, Alfred Schnittke along with some I can’t remember, also at concerts I have heard premier works from various composers which were quite forgetable. At the moment I am listening to Schnittke’s Concerto for mixed chorus,
I assume this will tell you something about my musical taste, btw what instrument do you play?
I forgot to mention that tonight I will be hosting a music evening and will present the Violin Concert in two movements by Edgar Mayer (a fantastic Bassist) performed by Hillary Hahn, I can guarantee it will go down quite well along with 'among other works' Elgar's Cello Concerto, LSO, du Pre the 65 recording.

As a child, I learnt to play the tuba and the piano. But as an adult, I play a little bit of many instruments.As the jazz man said "it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"
Most AG music lacks the basics that make music enjoyable to me and a lot of concert goers, I really can't say much more! and what is your instrument?
