Is the pinhed onto something here, or has he finally gone over the edge?

So, this looks like the end of the road.

Now let's everybody name their favorite 21st-century hi-art composition. Very Happy

Should have guessed that Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou would have to do the score.  

I was considering asking "Who's yer favorite 21st-century composer?" But it's so vexing when the answers are all composers born before 1940. Mad

Vangelis was under 60 at the turn of the millenium, so the pinhed will go along with his being a 21st-century composer (since 57 is the new 39).

So, the programs notes for Beethoven's Archduke Trio tell of the fateful watershed point that classical music reached in 1811. affraid

"Europe was in the midst of rapid social change. Napoleon was soon to fall from power, and the imminent rise of the bourgeoisie coupled with the steady decline of the aristocracy's influence. The decline of the aristocracy also led to the decline of domestic music-making. As amateur musicians became generally less proficient and less able to master the music of composers as technically demanding as Beethoven, a new wave of music began to appear. This was music composed expressly for professional musicians to perform at public concerts for the bourgeois audience."
