Huang RAO, didn't he loose on American Idol, and go on to sell a bucnh of albums anyway? Why would some parents name their kid hung low anyway, guess they didn't like him?

Another entirely new composer for me, though the music on this disc sounds suspiciously familiar. Boris Tishchenko lives and studied in Russia, and studied with Shostakovich himself. It rather shows, at least here. That

How much more exotic than a blend of East and West can one get? (Perhaps Mongolian throat singing or Gambian folk music I suppose.) Surely then Tan Dun should be worth a listen. I mean, I inaugurated this thread with a recording of similar (well, not really) works by Huang Ruo, so another success should be assured.

Such is not the case. The disc Bitter Love, which is a series of extracts from Tan Dun

Todd, this is one of my favorite threads... keep it up. I especially liked your coverage of Isang Yun. Talk about off the beaten path! I bought an LP of Isang Yun's music a couple of months ago but still haven't gotten to it yet...

Time for another work of High Art! After such a success as the Henze disc, another heavy-duty, intellectual, superbly crafted work should be the ticket. There are many choices out there, of course, but I determined that I should try an opera this time around (for no particular reason), and that something by Ferruccio Busoni would be nice (again, for no particular reason). This led me to Kent Nagano
