About this playlist

This year there has been a lot of intriguing new music to discover, from celebrated greats like John Adams and this year’s Pulitzer Prize winner Julia Wolfe to the incredibly talented Mohammed Fairouz, the youngest composer to debut on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label.

There’s also the latest soundscape from environmentally conscious John Luther Adams and a meditative evocation of Iceland by Anna Thorvaldsdottír.

This playlist mixes instrumental and vocal selections and interweaves generations too, including some of the most exciting voices among today’s emerging composers: Eric Nathan’s debut, Missy Mazzoli, Judd Greenstein and Bryce Dessner.
