- Contemporary Classical Musical Recommendations?
Not usually my thing, but been in Aus listening to a Radio 4-esque radio station and they played quite a bit of modern classical stuff (yes I should have written names down but I was driving!)
So – any recommendations? Particularly like minimalist, piano or string stuff, but happy to be guided…

Try something by John Tavener. ‘The Protecting Veil’ is a personal favourite.
Not exactly minimalist, but incredibly moving.
Samuel Barber is another one to try – you’ll have heard Adagio for Strings
from the Platoon soundtrack, but the violin concerto and Essays for an Orchestra are both superb.
Give Cornelius Cardew a go if you fancy a bit of a challenge. Like most of these people, a very interesting character as well!Posted 9 years ago
