Cool stuff, if you’re into classical music composed by people still alive.
In my last column, "Stop Playing With Your Ticket", I suggested that one way to make concert music more urgent or immediate to one’s life is to seek out the music of living composers. To promote this view, I have decided to write a periodic column (roughly every fifth installation) concerning a composer still alive and working. I will entitle this sub-column "The Sounds of Now", which will introduce readers to the music of the last 40 years or so.
