Latin America loses another epic composer

Message from the conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya:

Enrique Iturriaga, who died in Lima on November 23 aged 101, studied with Honegger in Paris and taught in the Peruvian national conservatoire. He composed in an idiom that conjoined folk-music roots to mild modernist techniques.

He died on the same weekend as the centenarian Chilean composer Juan Orrego Salas.
