Gunther Schuller

RIP Gunther Schuller. He was still going strong, folks. I saw him at Symphony Hall recently when they played one of his newer works, "Dreamscape". It was trippy and funny and engaging. I will never forget hearing him describe his "education": wake up at 8am, head to the NY public library for reading and score study, maybe catch a film in the afternoon, then head to the Met, play french horn for an opera, then go to 52nd street to hear some jazz, jam and talk with the jazzers afterwards until 4am, repeat.
