Music of the 1960's
Say 'music of the 1960's' and the Beatles and Rolling Stones come imediately to mind, or at least they do to me who grew up in that era, but what about the classical music written at that time?
On the whole, the 1960's has something of a tough reputation in the classical field but looking at some of the pieces written in that era is it time for a long overdue re-assessment? After all this music is now 50 years old.
I'm just going through those I have on CD (orchestral with a few choral mostly, no opera) but would welcome any interesting thoughts as to forum members favourites or pet hates!
