Death of a shy Czech composer, 76

Ivana Loudova was an intense voice in Czech music who published more than 100 works.

She studied in France with Messaien and Jolivet and worked for a while in a Paris experimental studio, but her gift was for natural expression and she was able to be prolific without self- repetition.

Her closest working relationship abroad was with the American Wind Symphony Orchestra.

She died in Prague on July 25.
