Description
Iannis Xenakis (Greek: Γιάννης (Ιάννης) Ξενάκης [ˈʝanis kseˈnacis]; 29 May 1922 – 4 February 2001) was a Greek-French composer, music theorist, architect, and engineer. After 1947, he fled Greece, becoming a naturalized citizen of France. He is considered an important post-World War II composer whose works helped revolutionize 20th century classical music.



In 1997 he received the Kyoto Prize, 1999 the Polar Music Prize, which is regarded as an unofficial Nobel Prize for Music.



Iannis Xenakis died in Paris in February 2001, after years of suffering from Alzheimer's, and he was able to create his last works only with the help of assistants.
