PW thread on why there aren’t any ‘great’ composers today

Here. The ensuing discussion was very interesting. It more or less concluded that there are indeed great composers today. They include people who write pop music and composers who write the ‘serious’ stuff. The former are far more visible because of the monetary ‘top of the pops’ angle, while the latter are not generally visible. Some composers were mentioned. I’ll check them out when I can.
