John Adams

John Adams is one of most popular contemporary composers.  He writes music that is easy to understand and beautifully orchestrated, yet still challenging.  Here is an interview with him concerning the state of contemporary classical music:

Adams was artist-in-residence for the Pittsburgh Symphony a few years ago and his "Dr. Atomic" has been recorded by the Atlanta Symphony.  His "A Flowering Tree" will be performed by the ASO on June 7 and 9, 2012.
