SAD NEWS | Pulitzer Prize-Winning Composer Mario Davidovsky Has Died - Aged 85 [RIP]

Pulitzer Prize-winning Argentinian-American composer Mario Davidovsky has passed away - aged 85

Pulitzer Prize-winning Argentinian-American composer Mario Davidovsky has passed away in New York City - aged 85.

A student of Aaron Copland and Milton Babbitt, Mr Davidovsky served long-term teaching positions on faculty at the Manhattan School of Music, Yale University, Columbia University and Harvard University - and was awarded a 1970 Pulitzer Prize for his work 'Synchronisms No. 6 for Piano and Electronic Sound'. 

“Music is the summation, the aggregate, of all the choices, all we do ... it’s a chaotic enterprise, a degree of understanding,” he told the New York Times at the time.

Our condolences are with Mr Davidovsky's family, friends, colleagues and students.
