I'm looking for modern classical music that is more tonal, hence the thread name. I love dissonance but only to a certain degree and for me much of the modern composers I've heard tend to ramble on and don't have a defined melody throughout the piece. For instance Firebird or Rite of Spring, great pieces but they almost tend to bore me at some places as they don't have a melody in the traditional sense. If anyone understands what I'm trying to say and has any recommendations please let me know.
