Gunther Schuller In Memoriam

UnknownI had planned to post today about how Gunther Schuller would be receiving the Edward MacDowell Medal at the MacDowell Colony this coming August. Instead, I must sadly acknowledge his passing yesterday at the age of 89.

I will always be grateful to Gunther for his generous support, beginning with my time at Tanglewood some 31 years ago, including publishing some early pieces of mine with his firm Margun Music. I will continue to learn from his writings and transcriptions (despite the flaws of a few of the latter). And I will continue to admire his music: powerful in expression and expertly crafted.

I previously posted about Gunther here, here, here, here, and here.
