Modern classical for philistines
August 9, 2017 9:49 AM Subscribe
I really like the more pop-oriented works of Philip Glass -- Metamorphosis, Glassworks, and a lot of his film scores. I like Glass's busy, rhythmic style; I like how thematic they are, with the same melodic throughline being developed in various ways; and at the end of the day I love how goddamn catchy his compositions are, how easily they get stuck in your head. I know almost literally zero about modern classical music -- are there other composers doing this sort of thing whom I should be aware of?
