Some of the 20th Century's most innovative composers were born the last week of October: George Crumb, Dominick Argento, Ned Rorem, Howard Hanson, not to mention Georges Bizet, Nicolo Paganini and Johann Strauss from the previous century and a personal favorite of mine, Domenico Scarlatti from the Baroque era.

Today we celebrate two weavers of new sound tapestries, composers who keep us engaged with unexpected textures. Sofia Gubaidulina, turning 86 today, is still composing and Luciano Berio, born this day in 1922, left us a treasure of experiments in sound.
