The arranger, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, has done some interesting projects melding classical ensemble structure to compositions from other genres. I don't know if its online but he did an orchestral remake of Charlie Parker's string album too.

I love how flexible he is as an arranger and performer. He definitely flexes some of his more avant garde/experimental muscles in a lot of their collaborations beyond Ma Dukes. They just released a new live recording, improvisational I think, called Chicago Waves; it has some very strong minimalist Glass/Reich/Riley sort of vibes but a bit more ambient in feel.

*** Quest Ensemble - a piano trio - has a very engaging recent album, "The Other Side" -- I really enjoyed it. A favorite track: "The Boatman" - https://qensemble.bandcamp.com/album/the-other-side

*** Ian William Craig's new record this year, "Red Sun through Smoke," is gorgeous and heartbreaking and mysterious all at once, written literally as his grandfather passed and it feels like it. It's one that I liked right away but didn't expect to come back to a lot. It got its hooks in me though. He releases via 130701, always a good place to look for music in the contemporary/post-classical vein. https://ianwilliamcraig.bandcamp.com/album/red-sun-through-smoke

*** John Luther Adams - In the White Silence is an absolute favorite of mine. https://open.spotify.com/album/5cI76ytLpOmAXDY53YtvLC?si=5l7PK5aLSOGQnjKMl8JZwA

(JLA also has a new set out featuring the "Become" trilogy on Canteloupe Music)

*** I'm smitten with Caroline Shaw (like the rest of the world). Partita for 8 Voices is a given but a personal favorite is the Plan & Elevation Suite from this album: https://open.spotify.com/album/5d0tz2baP5WGhMzZvONcgU?si=spZAzbanSoGKMqsRlNkuJQ


And although you asked for new classical, there have been some really amazing releases in the rest of the classical world this year that I've kept in steady rotation that I thought I'd share in case anyone is interested:
** Vikingur Olafsson's "Debussy-Rameau" puts the musical impressionism of Debussy side-by-side with late French Baroque's enfant terrible, Rameau, to stellar effect

** Alexandre Tharaud and Jean-Guihen Queyras have a beautiful album of a diverse range of music re-arranged for cello and piano called "Complices";

** Feico Deutekom's Philip Glass: Musical Offering is an eye-opening set of Glass's orchestral music transcribed for piano

** Igor Levit's just released "Encounter" is an *outstanding* performance of Bach and Brahms chorale preludes, capped off with a performance of Morton Feldman's "Palais de Mari"

In case anyone wanted to hear him play Facades: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOUmA1wBtTA

And Olfsson's piano playing was more delicate and precise than I am used to hearing Debussy played as.

Thank you for sharing all this music.
