Going to take a special person to answer this one: 28 years old, classical music is finally starting to appeal to me. I am reasonable well versed in music in general but not at all in classical music. The leaked version of "Not about love" by Fiona Apple includes a marvoulous string arrangement while she sings "What is this posture I have to stare at" through "Step out of this sight Try to live in a lovelier life" that makes my brain squeal in delight.
For those of you who know what I am talking about, try to lead me into something similar sounding. Those of you who have never heard the leak point me in the direction of what I call 'modern classical.'
I am drawn to the speed and complexity juxtaposed with the 'classical' string sound.
I have already taken steps to answer this question myself, amazon accepted my order for Thomas Adès' "Asyla." Am I on the right track?
