Is it considered "unconventional"? i.e. Does it sound like a little like jazz or some other form of non-classical music, or employs instruments that aren't usually used for classical music (electrical, folk etc).

Thanks. Much to Marye's dismay, we frequently assume 'North America' means 'United States'. It's not like there are no Canadian or Mexican composers like, well, like, umm, like, ... well....umm....like .... Well, I'm sure thare are some! :D

By the way, do you suppose Bignaf considers the year 1900 the 19th century or the twentieth century? I was going to guess Aaron Copland, but he doesn't fit the bill if Bignaf considers 1900 to be the 20th century....

Uh, oh...you said the B-word. No, it's not 'by', or 'but', or 'bill' :P

I was thinking about the same thing. So what's it Naf? Does 1900 belong to the 19th century in your books? :D

this used to be a pet peeve of mine around year 2000, when everyone was babbling prematurely about the new millenium. it is not a question of what I consider it, do the math. 1900 is definitely 19th century.

Here are a couple more questions.

Mexican composer?

Regarding the unconventional Q... with regard to the instruments (as opposed to the form of music)?

15. no. (the piece sounds a little like jazz or some other form of non-classical music, but doesn't employ unconventional instruments).

I just wanted to confirm if he was Canadian by birth.

Bignaf,

RE:
1900 is definitely 19th century.


I concur, I was one of those that didn't celebrate the 'new millenium' until 2001. Actually I didn't celebrate it at all, since the numbering system assigned to the passage of years is just an arbitrary assignment based on an approximation of the year of Jesus Christ's birth. Given the number of people that celebrated it in 2000 (including the President of the United States), I wasn't sure if which side you fell on.

Given that the composer is not from the United States, I won't ask the Copland question, though. :D

So, I'll ask a different question - Is the composer male?
