Music Composers Unite!
I notice a lot of conversation on this board lately about atonal music and I thought I would share with you something I have found interesting on the subject. There's this Canadian composer named Samuel Andreyev on YouTube who is doing in depth analysis of notable composers from a variety of nontonal approaches. He must be some kind of teacher, so in depth and in detail that I think these must be recorded lectures for a class. Now, I don't give a fig for any atonal music whatsoever, but I have been fascinated by these videos, because what I have come to appreciate about these composers through watching Sam's videos is what an immense amount of thought went into these compositions. It's really quite interesting to hear him dissect them. I still don't like atonal music, but I feel a much deeper understanding of it than I had before. Here's a link to his videos page, plus a list in no order of some of the composers he has analyzed.
