Composer Cagematch! Round 2: Webern vs. Hindemith

Well. I don’t know if there’s a general prejudice against composers who are still alive or what, but they don’t seem to be doing very well. First you let Steve Reich go down, and then you voted Webern in waaay ahead of Boulez. Interesting.

ANNNNNNNNNNTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEBERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRN

And in this corner, he doesn’t let being a violist stop him! It’s

hindemith

They’re both dead, so this might be a little harder for you.
