A composer stricken with tinnitusmain
The Swedish composer Lars Edlund died yesterday, aged 91.
A prolific writer for voices, with an oratorio on Dante’s Divine Comedy to his name, he began suffering from a terrible ringing in his ears after undergoing surgery to correct the effects of a stroke.
Edlund was an influential teacher for several decades at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
