My favorite pastime lately has been expand my musical appreciation by trolling thru YouTube for performances of the violin classics - Mozart, Beethonvan, etc. I've come to the classics late in life. Today I thought I would look to see what modern, living composers were doing. What I ran into was less than satisfying. I must admit my taste are pretty conservative - I much prefer the paintings of Renoir to those of Pollock.
Can anyone recommend modern composers of violin music that is more in the line of the flowing romanticism of Beethoven or Sibelius and less in the line of the discordancy being practised by the modern minimalists, like Crumb.
