Henryk Gorecki died last week. (Friday?) It always makes me feel sad and a little bit guilty whenever a composer or performer I’ve heard of but am not familiar with dies. I have forever missed the opportunity to hear his work while he was still alive. But of course, it really doesn’t matter all that much. He has joined the company of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and many others and it’s never too late for discovery.
I sort of hate to post anything this gloomy on Monday but since I can’t go back in time and post it Friday I can’t think of any better time.
