Composer Hans Werner Henze, 86
"[He] was a major figure in the music of the past half-century and the leading German composer of the post-1945 era; but he was often at odds with his native country politically and aesthetically. ... At one time a strict adherent to the serial technique of composition, he later abandoned it. Declaring his belief in melody, he was regarded by the avant-garde as a traitor to the cause." The Telegraph (UK) 10/27/12
