- Debussy Prélude à L’Après-midi d’un faune
- Glass Violin Concerto No.1
- Schoenberg Theme and Variations
- Debussy La Mer

Pierre Boulez said that modern music began with Debussy’s Prélude à L’Après-midi d’un faune, the essence of the languid, erotic heat of summer.

For the essence of the wind, the waves and the smack of salt spray, look no further than Debussy’s La Mer.

Many thought Schoenberg’s ‘twelve-tone’ system of composition was revolutionary, but Schoenberg insisted it was just the latest step in a great tradition. Philip Glass ignored tradition entirely. His shimmering, hypnotic music is like nothing before it.
