R. Murray Schafer

NYO Canada remembers

NYO Canada was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most creative and eminent Canadian composers we ever had the great privilege to work with. He was a joy to know, a wonderful musician, and a superb composer. His love of music and his ability to share and nurture that love in everyone who heard his works is a wonderful gift, that shall be dearly missed.
