Daniel Catan

The LA Times reports that composer Daniel Catan (Florencia en el Amazonas, Il Postino) has died unexpectedly in his sleep. He was teaching at the University of Texas, Austin, this semester.

Very sad; he was only 62 and surely had many fine works to compose. I hope to see his operas some day.

Sad news! I really enjoyed Florencia when it was done here, I'm sorry I missed Il Postino due to ongoing poverty issues.

Hahaha, my word to enter is: dopercat
