Focus on Young Composers (Under Age 40)

Today on "Classical Discoveries" I presented works by a number of composers, all under the age of 40. There is a tremendous amount of talent by our younger composers from all over the world. I personally feel that if "Classical Music" is to survive we must give the works of our young composers a chance to be heard on radio and in the concert hall. When I present the music of a young composer in the classroom the students eyes and ears open up because this is a musician they can relate to. Classical music (don't like this term at all--"Art Music" I feel is better.) incluces more than selections by dead composers. Yes, the masterworks by Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn, etc. are great, no question about it. However, we music never forget the music and composers of our time. Young composers make "Classical Music" more relevant to the experience of a young music student. The young are our future. We can't forget them!!
