Death of a productive British composer

We regret to report the death yesterday of Duncan Druce, at the age of 76.

A key member of Harrison Birtwistle’s Pierrot Players, he explored both the outer reaches of modernism and of early music, working as a violinist and viola player with Christopher Hogwood and various period ensembles.

Among other arrangements, he created a completion of Mozart’s Requiem for Roger Norrington.
