FYCM is dedicated to classical music of the recent past, present and future. (We realize the nomenclature of classical music is debatable and the boundaries of what is considered classical music are always changing. Basically, we're just going to post whatever we feel like.) We do love submissions and requests!

About me: I am a music student in the United States.

Mezzo Susan Graham sings Ned Rorem’s ‘O do not love too long’ which caught me off guard in the middle of my casual listening last night.  So exquisite.  Text is by William Butler Yeats.

Always reblog Ned Rorem. God I adore his music.

George Crumb’s “Makrokosmos” looks just as cool as it sounds.

He has my favorite handwriting of any composer, I think.

Pope’s Concert” from The Red Violin (Music by John Corigliano, performed by Joshua Bell).

For various—obvious—reasons, I’ve always associated this track with Susan Kay’s Erik, particularly Persia onward.

Also, one of the most delightfully obscene pieces of instrumental music in my library.
