Sir John Tavener
The classical music world lost a most distinguished composer this November, Sir John Tavener.
At the age of 24 he was described by the British newspaper, The Guardian, as “the musical discovery of the year.” During his career he became one of the best known and popular composers of his generation. Knighted in 2000 for his services to music, he will be sorely missed.
