"The present day composer refuses to die."   Truer words have rarely been spoken,  better still that they are the words of Edgard Varese,  a perennial inspiration to myself and others who create music not out of some financial consideration,  but because we can simply do nothing but create music,  maybe sometimes inspired by the Classical greats,  but not necessarily stuck in their oeuvre.  Let us then celebrate the living composers,  the weavers of merriment,  magic,  enchantment,  and delight,  for they too are worthy of your consideration.
