I am not trying to be morbid, but rather pay respects to fellow musicians/composers. We live in a world where Mozarts' can die bankrupt, and Beethovens' popularity wains as they get older. Society finds gems and celebrates them, but then all to quickly the attention fades and new gems are found and celebrated. When people pass, it is important (IMHO) to mark, with some reverence, their contribution to this world. So, if you were not aware of the two composers who have recently passed, take a moment and find out more about them. Both were innovators.
