Can someone point me to some artists that are putting out new classical music? All i can ever find are people with cellos covering guns n roses. I wanna hear something new, original, and beautiful.

Thanks in advance.

Dude mangoes are so good. Imagine a blowjob, but instead of the feeling being on your dick, it's on your mouth.

Well, for guitar, there's Leo Brouwer and Roland Dyens. Probably the two biggest classical guitar composers right now. I mean real classical, not just fingerpicking on a nylon string.

Then there are composers like William Walton, Lennox Berkeley, and Peter Sculthorpe is pretty interesting. Plus you have your film composers like John Williams.

Reminds me of that drunkard who ran out of beer... he was so desperate, he drank furniture polish.

He came to a horrible end... but a beautiful finish.

Frank Ticheli. Not a classical composer per se, but a popular composer nowadays. Check out Angels in the Architecture, its overall an awesome piece, but he steals melodies from some of his other works in it. The word "epic" pretty much sums it up, go check it out.
