French composer Dutilleux dies

PARIS: France’s Henri Dutilleux, whose modernist and impressionist works ranked him among the leading composers of the 20th century, died Wednesday in Paris aged 97. The internationally renowned Dutilleux, born in Angers in 1916, was a composer of predominantly instrumental works ranging from symphonies, orchestral pieces, violin concertos and piano music. His latest work “Correspondances” - recorded by the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen - came out in January this year to celebrate his birthday.–AFP
