John Marks recommends seven post-1950 compositions on Stereophile's "Audiostream" satellite site




Hi, all.

Upon my leaving Stereophile, Michael Lavorgna sent me one of the many many nice emails I received, closing with, if I ever wanted to guest-write for his computer-audio site, he would like that.

Took me a little time to come up with a "hook," but, there has been up since last week a nice little column--the writing style might be familiar to a few of you... .

The task I assigned myself was to persuade people to check out great pieces of music since 1950 (therefore, no Bartok Concerto for Orchesta) that were not Neo-Romantic or Neo-Anything (therefore, no Howard Hanson and no Morten Lauridsen), all of which had to have personal resonance for me--this was not a case of "eat your spinach, it is good for you" (much less, "Put on a sweater; I'm cold").

So, please check it out and please make any comments there as well as here.

Thanks to all,

john
