Penderecki, one of the great modern composers, shuffled off this mortal coil today at the age of 86. Known for his avant-garde style, Penderecki established himself as arguably Poland’s greatest contemporary composer. Several of his works were featured in two of the more influential horror films of the twentieth century: The Exorcist and The Shining.

Requiescat in pace.
