I hope he passed away peacefully.
We have lost one of our most important composers. I'm wishing he had published or released more of his composition during his lifetime. Maybe more of his work will be unearthed, although what he left us with is still remarkable. He is one of the few composers in this day and age, who has spoken clearly through his music.
Symphony No. 3 is one of the most moving pieces of music I have ever heard. The recording with Dawn Upshaw truly does him justice. It is like a bright searing light in the darkness of Winter.
