I'm quite saddened to learn of the passing of Ned Rorem, whom I regard as ranking among the greatest of modern-era composers.
Rorem worked with Poulenc in the 1950's and initially was known more for his vocal music. He continued to grow as an instrumental composer. His series of published journals make excellent reading and I know a voice teacher who devoured each one as it came out. Ned Rorem will be missed.
