Perfect Pairings! Anna's next 10 x 10

From Anna’s ‘Composers you should know’ series...

My oh my, I have missed writing to our Everything Conducting audience members!

It has been a pleasure to return to my love of finding interesting and terrific music by a diverse range of underrepresented composers. This list is especially for Music Directors, Artistic Administrators, and general music listeners that crave to hear a variety of interesting music performed with their local professional, university, community, or youth symphony orchestras.

As many of us have begun to perform regular concert seasons, I thought it would be fun to consider music that could provide interesting pairings with traditional favorite “tried and true” compositions.


Entries will follow the following format:

  • Theme and/or commonalities

  • Composer Name (hyperlink to additional info about the composer)

  • Titles hyperlink to a recording

  • Length of composition

  • Instrumentation

  • Link to rental information via publisher or composer website


I hope you enjoy!
