    So are there people actually making new [INSERT CORRECT WORD HERE] music as a stand-alone not as part of the soundtrack for a movie/TV/game?

    Not sure what you mean, are you asking if there are any contemporary composers that doesn't just work with soundtracks? If so, then yes.

    While I guess its not techincally classical, but Modern orchestra & Piano; These are two of my favorite pieces of music

    Philip Glass's Metamorphosis

      Spoiler:
    Some people may recall the first movement which was used in BSG when Helo & Kara were at her apt on Caprica, she said it was a tape of her father, it was the only time they used music that wasn't composed by Bear McCreary, aside from Hendrix


    And
    Islands - The Best of Ludovico Einaudi

    is anyone able to find the full video of this performance. not only does it sound amazing but watching the pianist play this in almost a panic is somehow weirdly moving?

    you know they're real pros when a) the guy can carry out a conversation while conducting an orchestra b) the pianist can seemingly nail a piece and play it beautifully when she was expecting to play a totally different one

    fucking cool stuff
    MAX damage posting

    Ravel had a way with layering music that was incredible, and under the direction of George Szell it's just beautiful.


    Copland was well known for using lots of fifths in his music, had a very wide open sound. The opening of Billy the Kid is full of them:


    Also surprised that The New World Symphony hasn't been posted here yet:

    Bump!

    I've recently developed a taste for another underappreciated, almost modern composer: Kurt Atterberg. Some of his works may creak under a bit of bombast, but it is nice listening.

    Example:

    A friend of my cousin has recorded this (composed and played by him, video by cousin). I love it and am pimping it out, as he's crowd funding to self publish. A bit 'Satie-esque' (eric satie)
