Great Contemporary Classical Composers

Post by DavisComposer85 » Sat Jun 17, 2017 4:08 am

Hi everyone, can you recommend me a list of great contemporary Classical Composers?

I only know Andrew York.

Hopefully not so much percussive playing, sometimes people over use this techniques in my opinions.

Take a look at Bergmann Edition - there you will find a lot of contemporary music, both tonal and atonal.

Check out Howard Rovics. His Impressões do Brasil for guitar duo is beautiful. You can hear it by searching for "Harris Becker Catgut Flambo". The cd-baby page for that album has 3 Rovics tracks. "Cancao" is especially nice.

Maximo Diego Pujol, Ullises Rocha (both guitarists).

For non-guitar playing composers, check out Anton Garcia Abril.
