Mix : HC – Best of Modern Classical 2010 – Part Two

Your wait is over! After last week’s Part One of Headphone Commute’s Best of Modern Classical 2010, I am back with the second half of this mix. A little less strings, a little more piano this time, this selection of tracks goes perfectly with today’s Music For Watching The Snow Slowly Fall In The Moonlight. Featuring my favorite tracks from my favorite modern classical albums of 2010, Part Two, subtitled Ascending Into Spirit, takes you on a journey into unknown, and brings you back to the source. As usual, the music speaks better than words, so I’ll let the artists do the talking. Thank you for all of your support!

  1. Eminently forgettable all, part one, (part two undownloaded therefore); vegan and gutless; music to fall asleep by; without anywhere a tune to take whistling away; nowhere evident of that struggle which comes of a high art; as if composed in one draft; muzak in a lift; unchallenging and inoffensive; limp; synthetically created, requiring no years of study. Goodbye.

  2. Thanks for both of these modern classical mixes – they’ve been perfect for listening at work when I need to really concentrate on my work and drown out the noise around me. And I’ve added a new “must find” items to my list, too. Keep up the great work!

  3. Just to re-iterate what people here and on most mixes pages have said, big big big up for the mixes and the work you put into this. Truly appreciated, I’m sure you know that. Headphone Commute are a recent discovery of mine (last 9 months or so) and I am never ever disappointed, keep up the work you do it ever so well. x

    1. Thank you, thank you!!! It never hurts to hear more good words. Especially when I feel a bit down, thinking that I’m just talking into the void… Your words are inspiring, and so I set off on my daily chores with a smile on my face :)

  4. I wish that, like some ambient mixes (Low Lights as an example), you could put the times of each of the songs on the mix so I can discern which song is which and then go and buy some of this music.

    Just a suggestion.


  5. Both of these Modern Classical mixes are astonishing, beautiful, moving.

    Thank you.

  6. Awesome! And I love the way tracks are displayed now – with album title, year and record label.
