Classical is dead only in the sense that new works will never come close to the greatness that was Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, or Monteverdi. The spirit of the music, however, lives on. There are still people around who are open to the message of these masters, however few.

This was written in 1981.

I could post more recent stuff that's really quality but I thought I would post something that would rival Mozart, Bach, Beethoven.
That shit doesn't come around all the time. Imagine if every year had a Jazz album better than A Love Supreme or Rock album better than Pet Sounds.

that does what Haas does? I agree there's a lot more, better classical music nowadays

damn, bodied, desu I'm not that into classical more into techno, I know that must set off alarm bells in ur head but if there are composers like haas that you think are better I would be open 2 & grateful 4 recs :)

even if they aren't like haas desu

define greatness
there are obviously new(er) works that are better than anything they ever wrote, but what is greatness (and who cares)?
>>
>>61585223
good modern classical music composers include:

harrison birtwistle (based as fuck)
wolfgang rihm
heinz holliger
kaija saariaho
unsuk chin
magnus lindberg
>>
>>61585149
Haas is gr8 m8 shut ur pleb mouf

They're right. No recent classical music is good and just makes an outdated style of music look even more outdated. No classical composer working today will;ever match the works of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Debussy, Chopin etc

I guess you haven't listened to any then.

You know that all of their work is generally considered to be pinnacles of their respective genres right? And that they produced it consistently year after year? And so the fact that you struggle to find music that would rival it ("that shit doesn't come around all the time") seems proof that classical is dying, no?
>>
>>61585335
Haas is a great composer.
It's a shame to see you're afraid of the implications of modernism.
>>
>>61585335
I guess i haven't because that's a shit piece and is not recent
thanks for proving my point
>>
any popular modern classical musicians?

Didn't think so
>>
>>61585361
>And so the fact that you struggle to find music that would rival it
But you don't.
Wagner matched them a few decades later.
Then Debussy/Stravinsky/Schoenberg.
Then Boulez and more arguable modern names.
If you aren't closedminded and an idiot, then there have consistently been people to match the old masters.

This is the era we're discussing though. Now is the dark patch in classical history. No one is disputing Wagner, Debussy, or even Stravinsky (how many of his late works are performed).

Schoenberg is shit though.
>>
>>61585386
how popular are we talking?
various film composers, einaudi (wouldn't call him classical myself, but enough people call him that) and glass and part are all super stars.

anyway, the argument from popularity is a retarded one.

Are you genuinely retarded?
You asked what 'modern classical musicians' were popular, I told you which ones were popular, not which ones I listened to; Jesus, is that hard for you to understand?
I'm actually listening to Sofia Gubaidulina right now.
>>
>>61585623
>there's a separate backlog folder
So you're the average /mu/tant who doesn't care about music, just crunching through as many "patrishun" albums as possible?
Even worse.
>>61585630
>Gubaidulina
You aren't helping your case.
Seriously, just fuck off if you don't know what you're talking about.
>>
>>61585630
And by the way I find it hard to believe someone with a good knowledge of classical music would refer to contemporary composers as popular 'modern classical musicians'. popular 'modern classical musicians' equally covers Shostakovitch, Furtwängler and, taking a less technical definition of "modern", Andre Rieu.
>>
>>61585662

you were the one who asked what I listen to you dip. do you have a point to make or are you just shitting your pants like a baby for attention?

Wasn't me, I'm OP.
>>
>>61585662
I'm beginning to suspect you know very little about classical music. Do you have a last.fm or rate your music or something that would show us what you actually listen to (presumably death grips and the occasional '50 most relaxing classical hits' cd)
>>
>>61585717
You cannot claim to love and listen to classical music if you do not appreciate Schoenberg onward.
>>
>>61585735
Then maybe you should have looked at the post I was responding to for context...

a good portion of the music in that screenshot alone is post-Schoenberg

>>61585857
I mean in Schoenberg's tradition.
Copland isn't fucking Schoenberg (save Connotations).

I wasn't talking about shit like John Williams or other film scores

and generally speaking popularity is an indicator of how much a genre is thriving

I an only think of like Philip Glass
>>
>>61585928
Don't think you do to be honest. Your profile screams 'I've never been to a classical concert but i'm really into le western art music I pirated guys xD' without knowing anything about the formal and/or technical aspects of the music.

there's still plenty of post-Schoenberg music in that sense, too. why are you raging so hard dude? is it inconceivable that maybe someone out there listens to as much or more music than you do?

Wait, but how can you claim shit like Grisey and Ligeti are better than Boulez?

OHHHHHHHH so YOU'RE the person detailed here: >>61586026

It's true. Art can no longer adequately express social relations. At this point it is nothing more than an anachronism.

>>61586167
>questioning my credentials
is this another avenue you would like me to embarrass you with? I am confident I have more and better degrees than you.

And I never said anything about Grisey, Ligeti, or Boulez. Just that Schoenberg's influence extends further than the quality of his music. And as to the original argument Boulez is hardly modern. He was on the same path at the time of his death as in the 1980s, and even then his output was infrequent due to his other duties - hardly apt for comparison with Mozart or Bach.
>>
>>61586257
>and even then his output was infrequent due to his other duties - hardly apt for comparison with Mozart or Bach.
>comparing output of modern composers/artists to classic
Get a load of this ignorant kid.
People don't music as much as they did back then, that's why there aren't any impressive catalogues to compare. Only rare people like Milhaud and Hovhannes have large catalogues and those two are spotty as fuck.
The quality of all Boulez' works is equivalent to the highest tier of Mozart's (which, let's remember, is half great and half mediocre).
