A Closer Listen’s Fall Modern Composition Preview

Source: A Closer Listen.

Fall is an introspective season, filled with nostalgia, loss and the sense that something is ending. The timbres of modern composition are a perfect fit for such thoughts. Pianos abound in our fall slate, but there’s still plenty of room for the orchestras small and large, as heard on many of the season’s top entries. There’s even a boxed set so large that it includes nearly a disc a day!
