Hans Werner Henze

Hans Werner Henze died today. Another good one goes.

I've always found his music a bit cumbrous, but it certainly is worth the listening effort. His "Tristan" piece and "Undine" ballet are two favourites of mine, and so is his 9th Symphony, which is is truly stunning (go check it out). He was a teacher, too, passing on his experience to young aspiring composers.

Rest in peace now.
