    Great piece.
    Thanks. We heard the Bates Cello Concerto last year at a Berkeley Symphony concert. It was played by the young rising star cellist Joshua Roman, who was the first cellist of the Seattle Symphony when he was 22. Very accessible piece. Bates was at the performance. Both he and John Adams live in the SF Bay Area.

    Many good suggestions here. I'm a big fan of ECM jazz as well as ECM classical (New Series). Here is an example of some amazing modern music from Arvo Part, the Estonian genius:

    Enjoy! (please don't waste your time Gary)

    I have been collecting modern classical records for sometime, not easy to come by. In addition to Part, here are some other modern musicians I recommend:

    Adams
    Cage
    Janacek
    Glass
    Gorecki

    Symphony 3 is a favorite:

    I saw Joshua Roman do Tavener's 'The Protecting Veil' about 8 years ago with a local Seattle Chamber Orchestra. he was really amazing.

    Taverner is brilliant and The Protecting Veil is a great work... really substantial modern classical music... or is it post modern. I sometimes get my moderns mixed up.

    I also note with sadness the passing a few days ago of Johann Johansson at just 48 years. Some very moving tributes in the press around the world but no mention of the cause of death.

    His work was always elegiac and tinged with some sorrow. He also made movie music that wasn’t too popcorn. He had a talent for making meaningful and evocative music for films that didn’t just seem too overtly programmatic. Very sorry to hear of his going. His work is a proper legacy and just by chance I was playing his music Orphee on the day when a mate txt’d to mention he had heard he had passed.
