As our sister station WTTW launches 10 Buildings that Changed America, WFMT poses the question, what pieces of music have that kind of significance? On Lasting Impressions, WFMT asked a dozen critics, conductors, and composers, “Which single piece written in the last 25 years do you think will still be heard in 100 years?”
Answers are pouring in. There seems to be one trend emerging: there’s a lot of great music being written in the United States. Critics from the Washington Post to the New York Times agree, the U.S. has become a beacon for new music. On Monday, May 13, tune in throughout the day to hear the compositions. Tune in, and write in to tell us what you think of these works.
