Celebrated composer Steve Martland has died at the age of 53.
The British musician passed away in his sleep on Monday (06May13), according to a representative from his publisher Schott Music, although no further details about his death were available as Wenn went to press.
Born in Liverpool, England, Martland studied under top Dutch composer Louis Andriessen and became known for pieces such as 1983's Babi Yar, which was debuted simultaneously in the U.K., with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and in the U.S. with the St. Louis Symphony.
He also toured with his own Steve Martland Band, composed scores for British Tv shows including Wilderness Edge, and wrote and co-directed a Bbc film about Andriessen, titled A Temporary Arrangement with the Sea.
