1931-2008. Ouch.

Here’s a nice appreciation from Gramophone.

One Response to “Mauricio Kagel — Adios, freunde”
  1. Rob Baker says:

    More composers should have his sense of humour, and willingness to mock, question and challenge conventions.
    What could have been more so than “Solo for Conductor”; if I remember the score correctly, at the end of which the conductor feigns death – but the score, reads words to the effect, ‘if the conductor can actually die, even better’ (!!!!!!)
    (anyone else remember, have I got that right?)

    Cheers, Mauricio
