Time to Weigh in....

My colleague Julie Amacher shared this entry from Friday's Arts Journal website.

The question? Which 10 living composers will still be played in 50 years' time? The Arts Journal site paired it down to five locks: Birtwistle, Boulez, Rautavaara, Reich and Sondheim. Then came the probables, followed by the possibles.

So what do you think? We'd love to see YOUR top 10.
