    So Farewell Then Pierre Boulez
    Master of serialism and
    Squeaky music
    but not for brass band
    Your obituary said you
    came from a non-musical family
    I think we all guessed.

    That reminds me of a quote I read of Sir Thomas Beecham. When asked if he'd ever heard any Stockhausen, he replied:

    "No, but I think I've trodden in some."
