I have been thinking of posting this topic for a good few months now, so as we approach one of the 'holy' times of the year, here we go:
A few ideas but take it where you will:
- Is 'holy minimalism' an apt term?
- Who should be in 'the group' of such composers and who should not?
- Is it here to stay?
- What do people think of this music?
- What are the must have recordings (or must have not!)
Here is what I have in my collection:
PART: Collage (Chandos) A Portrait (Naxos) Symphony 3 etc...(Naxos)
Symphony 4 (ECM)
GORECKI: Symphony 2 (Naxos) Symphony 3 (Elektra Nonesuch)
Kleines Requiem for eine polka etc...(Nonesuch)
RAUTAVARRA: Before the icons/A tapestry of life (Ondine)
(TAVERNER: Various choral works on vinyl) |
