Last Composer Standing

Arts Journal, a website about the best in arts and culture, held a poll last November to determine which modern composer would stand the test of time.

Posing a question to their readers, Twitter and Facebook fans, Arts Journal asked: Which composer will still be played fifty years from now?

The number one choice?

1. John Adams

2. Arvo Pärt

3. Steve Reich

4. Philip Glass

5. Pierre Boulez

5= George Crumb

5= Henri Dutilleux

8. Osvaldo Golijov

9. Thomas Ades

10. Henry Mikolai Gorecki

You too, may well agree after watching Nixon in China.
