A time to dream

From Ivan Hewett's obituary of him in the Guardian
Those ideas are strenuous, boldly speculative, and high-minded in a way that doesn't really suit our more cautious age; but when the time to explore and dream comes again, Stockhausen's music will be waiting for it.

Pliable has a fairly discursive life summary here, I remember taking part in a back stage invasion at a Stockhausen conducted concert in the Queen Elizabeth Hall back in 1973(?). I wonder whether his death means that some of the Stockhausen discography will become available in the shops again? (it wasn't the shops fault!)
