    So sorry hear this. I was privileged to study with him at the Aspen Music Festival in 1976. Sang in a huge choir for a North American premier of one of his compositions "Utrenja". Met him one night on a street corner in town and chatted for about half an hour. A brilliant composer and very approachable, lovely man. RIP.

    Wow, two great posts there.

    Jaco, you have great experiences to fall back on there. I would have liked to have met him, for sure.

    Neatomic - I never knew of this recording. It's great!

    Wow, never heard this before! Thanks for posting this. A great way to celebrate KP (Threnody is so powerful it is overwhelming right now...).

    They turned to KP's music when William Friedkin rejected Lalo Schifrin's music for the soundtrack to "The Exorcist".
    Friedkin took the tape of Schifrin's score for the film, and sent it rolling down the floor of the studio, till it smashed into the outside door, accompanied by a number of expletives from WF that I can't say here...

    and good thing he did..as the young prodigy mike oldfield got his tubular bells into it..that made both the film and soundtrack!!...

    i love lalo s (bullit! whew)..but it would not have been near the same impact

    With all due respect to the departed, how should one categorize these performances historically? Good playing . . . Marinero

    Why should anyone characterize these performances? Just enjoy and be grateful.

    Hi, Ron,
    For me, there's nothing here to enjoy . . . . it's cacophony. Grateful . . . that sounds religious. Good playing . . . Marinero

    the Threnody is a very powerful, visceral and emotionally raw piece of music.... he never quite made an impact like that again, did he?

    still, being able to connect with a listener like that? How many of can do that?

    Seems it can also upset, alienate and anger people even after all this time; but I can’t imagine someone being unaffected by it if they listen to the whole thing.

    And of course that is one value of live concerts, where you end up experience things you might not seek out.

    Makes me think what music is for. Most music is just pretty froth really. I do a lot of that, and I enjoy it, but it can be so much more.
