Polish composer Penderecki dies at 86 after long illness

Poland’s Krzysztof Penderecki, among the world’s most popular composers, passed away on Sunday at the age of 86, stated state-controlled news agency PAP.

“After a long and serious illness, Krzysztof Penderecki – one of the greatest Polish musicians, a world authority in the field of classical music died,” Poland’s Ministry of Culture stated in a tweet.

Penderecki was known for his movie scores, including for William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist,” Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” and David Lynch’s “Wild at Heart,” for his Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima and the largely atonal St Luke’s Enthusiasm.

He won four Grammy Awards for his music, most recently for best choral efficiency in 2016.
