Here's a list of some composers whose music I enjoy whose names you've most likely never heard. If you have, please raise your hand and comment or email me. I'm betting I won't get a single response (except for John Cage - maybe).
I've listened to what has been called "20th century classical" or "dodecaphonic" or "serialist" or "atonal" music since my third year of high school when I was introduced to such things by Ms. Audrey Jacques, a great Humanities teacher from Orange Glen High School in Escondido, California where I spent three years of my life.
My appetite for classical music was fed by Kingsley McLaren, the music director for the only classical music radio station in San Diego. I took an Honors Music 101 course and Kingsley was the guest professor. That was an incredible class and I remember spending many hours after class chatting with Mr. McLaren about classical music. We both shared a love for Baroque, Renaissance, and 20th Century.

Good list. Ok, I've heard of everyone but Hosokawa and Perezzani. I don't think I've actually heard the music of Saariaho or Dallapiccola. I've listened a lot to Part, Ligeti and Varese. And yes, I'm listening to one of John Cage's Sonatas and Interludes as I write this.
Not surprisingly, I like 20th century and baroque but no longer really listen to 19th century music.
