Hi Trumpet

When it comes to classical music I really dislike Contempory Music - sounds like thunderclaps, pots and pans clanking together. I do like some Stravinsky, and Prokoieve (forgive the spelling.

Hope you get to see these musciains perform in person one day.

hi SuzyQ,

I have seen a few of them before. . . . I hope to get to Seattle more often this summer . . .

As for the likes and dislikes, they change as one develops.

I don't know how old you are, but when I was younger, I felt the same about most music that was Post-Romantic.

By listening to Stravinsky and Prokofiev you'll start becoming comfortable with the devices used.

It really started to click for me when I discovered the Mahler Symphonies.

anyway . . .



GOOOOOOROOOOOO

My favorite twentieth century composer is Aaron Copeland. I like "Fanfare for the Common Man". Several years ago, our philharmonic featured his music, and there was also a video choreograph program along with the music, with mainly scenes from the west, as Billy the Kid was one of the peices performed. It was a very good show.

I am a fragment of my imagination

Agnes deMillie did the choreography for Billy the Kid - Aaron Copeland's music.

You might like the ballet - not many companies perform it anymore. American Ballet Theater use to do it all the time.

I like his music also.
