Not including movements of symphonies (yet) and this list is set to change as my library expands. This is very unordered as of yet, still very much in its developmental stages.

for "Fratres," does the version you own have two tracks? if so, are you combining the two? because on my version they are separated by "Cantus in memory of Benjamin Britten," but the two tracks have the same name: "Fratres," not pt. 1, pt. 2...just curious because i too liked those as much as "Tabula Rasa" which is one track on my copy.

I intended it to mean both, although I do think the first is better. I personally see it as a kind of Alifib/Alifie setup, two tracks but one. The cantus... piece is also really good, not to mention the fantastic title track, it's an amazing neo-classical cd. Any other modern classical favourites you could recommend? I'v only heard that and Steve Reich & Phillip Glass etc and I'm trying to look for more.

i am sorry but i could probably not recommend much more than the others on this site. Parson Sound is a good album, but i would not consider it neo-classical at all. it is more classically inspired drone-psychedelic album. you should ask Afterhours, lukeprog, or darktremor.
