I though that perhaps OCaml might be a good candidate. One reason is  
that it gives good performance.

There is a package Haskell package Haskore <http://haskell.org/haskore/

lambda-calculus in music. Haskell though, because of its overall  
laziness, needs to use monads to express typing of imperative  
structures. Could be a bother in music.
