Folke Rabe died this week, aged 81.

A leading electronic avant-gardist in the 1950s, he settled down as music editor of Swedish Radio.

Well, a man’s gotta eat.

    “Was??” – the answer is in this case “pure torture.” However, Folke Rabe was a talented jazz musician (trombonist) and improviser which made his “classical” compositions “swing” at times.
