Personal Quote:

On political music: My dear, it would be terrible poverty of life if music were political. I cannot imagine it, because what does this mean--'political music?' That is why I ignore questions about political music, because music is music. Painting is painting. I can be involved in some political ideals that would be my personal life. See more »

A recording of his Third Symphony ("Symphony of Sorrowful Songs"), with soprano Dawn Upshaw and David Zinman conducting the London Sinfonietta, reached #6 on the British *pop music* charts in the early 1990s. See more »
