My favorite classical
composer is, without a doubt, Philip Glass. It's only because of him that I own any recordings of operas (Einstein on the Beach, Monsters of Grace
). And his soundtrack work is great as well (such as the Qatsi films). The endless repetitive electronic stuff isn't for everyone, but I likes it.
For me, the ever increasing indifference to whether the lyrics can be heard has sharply diminished interest and pleasure in pop music.
So I guess you're not fond of the Cocteau Twins then?
