Engaging Classical Music.The music you will find here is fun and engaging, all while preserving those aspects that make classical music deep: counterpoint, rich harmonies, instrumental palette, varied structures, and careful craftsmanship. I am a firm believer that sophisticated/deep/artful music can (and should) still be accessible. Crafting music that is both deep and accessible results in music that is engaging—from the first listening to the hundredth. These aesthetics reflect my several loves in classical music. I love counterpoint, whether it is a Josquin madrigal or Mozart's Requiem. I love the broad structures composers create. For example, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony starts with a movement that is almost 14 minutes long—nearly unheard of in popular music. I love the inventiveness of Haydn, the variety exemplified by Beethoven's symphonies, the expressiveness of Mahler... My love of this kind of music is what led me to composing. www.FraleyMusic.com
