Making sense of modern (classical) music. The Orange County Register, July 23, 2010.

This is another list of 10 recordings. The challenge here was to pick 10 recordings of modern and contemporary music that would help guide the novice, but curious, listener. Some of the usual suspects are included, but I picked a few surprises too, I think.

I have found a lot of resistance to modern classical music in O.C. But I have also encountered many listeners who, while they don’t understand it, want to.
