Margaret Brouwer

I only recently learned about Margaret Brouwer from a blog reader who lives in Texas. He wrote to me after hearing the premiere of her viola concerto.

In this interview with Margaret Brouwer, which is interesting all the way through, she discuses the difference between anger and assertiveness in her 21st century music. I really appreciate her no-nonsense approach to writing, and I appreciate her application of "classic" atonality into her music without needing to be intellectual about it.
