[The Guardian] A guide to contemporary classical music

  1. Welcome to our new contemporary music guide. Tom Service introduces his new series on contemporary classical music, and explains how we need your help.
  2. The five myths about contemporary music. Contemporary classical music is devoid of melody and appeal, all noise and no fun. At least, that’s the cliché. But this is music that is very much at the heart of our modern world.
  3. Guides to the music of: Elliott Carter, Pauline Oliveros, Harrison Birtwistle, John Zorn, Judith Weir, Oliver Knussen, Helmut Lachenmann, Arvo Pärt, Bernd Alois Zimmermann, Richard Rodney Bennett, Kaija Saariaho, Pierre Boulez, Michael Finnissy, Per Nørgård, Olga Neuwirth, John Cage, Peter Maxwell Davies, György Ligeti, John Adams, Brian Ferneyhough, Jonathan Harvey, Wolfgang Rihm, Thomas Adès, Jörg Widmann, Louis Andriessen, Steve Reich, Hans Werner Henze, Rebecca Saunders, Morton Feldman, Meredith Monk, Luigi Nono, Philip Glass, Luciano Berio, Cornelius Cardew, Gerald Barry, Witold Lutoslawski, Henri Dutilleux, Terry Riley, James Dillon, Toru Takemitsu, John Tavener, George Benjamin, György Kurtág, Gérard Grisey, La Monte Young, Alexander Goehr, Galina Ustvolskaya, Magnus Lindberg, Iannis Xenakis, Alfred Schnittke, Karlheinz Stockhausen.
  4. Contemporary classical music guide round-up. Choosing just 50 composers to tell the story of the contemporary classical music scene has been a rich and rewarding experience, but I’m only too aware of the ones that got away.
Tom Service, 23 April 2012-20 May 2013.
