Uros Krek (b.1922)

A couple of his pieces are broadcast here this week- String Sextet on a theme by Frank Martin & Movements concertante : anyone know of him? He's Slovenian and Grove mentions a neoclassical and folk influenced style, but sometimes 12 tone.

His music projects high emotional content and the use of neo-classicism, folk music, and modern melodic cells.

Uros means "male" in Finnish.  :)
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.
