Chime in: How to Approach New Music

This Saturday from 5-7 pm, WFMT’s Relevant Tones presents the second
annual Thirsty Ear Festival at City Winery, presenting some of finest
composers and musicians of new music today.

American composer Steven Stucky has written five pieces of advice
regarding listening to new music:

(1) don’t expect the wrong things; (2) be prepared for discontinuity;
(3) don’t try too hard; (4) expect new instruments, new sounds, and
new influences from other cultures; and (5) give yourself permission
to dislike what you hear.

Do you agree? What’s your advice for listening to new classical music?

Chime in today on wfmt.com or on our Facebook page.
