First one I didn't vote in, as I didn't know enough to make a judgement call. I already love Gubaidulina's 'Viola Concerto' though, and look forward to checking out more of her stuff!

You won't be disappointed! She doesn't seem to be composing much lately, and it makes me sad. Granted, she's 88 now, but that didn't stop Elliott Carter from writing some remarkable pieces up until the very end.

did he finish his 5th after his 6th?
I was puzzled by this as well. He seems to have overhauled the 5th in 1995, but I don't know quite to what extent.
I really hope Mode Records will complete their Rădulescu cycles with Stephen Clarke and the JACK Quartet. I did find it worrying that the composer's widow, the cellist Catherine Marie Tunnell, had to Kickstart The Complete Cello Works, which came out last year with Mode as vol. 3 of the Rădulescu Edition.

xp Carter another one I really need to search out. These polls - more than any other poll or thread series - have given me so much joy.
