Today in WMH: 1/21: Should’ve Skipped Dessert…

1/21 Today in Weird Music History: 1894: A Life Cut Short.  Guillaume Lekeu composer of some 50 musical compositions dies of typhoid fever, contracted from eating a tainted sorbet.

He also left us a favorite composer quote: “bien plus, ce sera bizarre, détraqué, horrible, tout ce qu’on voudra; mais du moins se sera original” (much more, it will be weird, crazy, horrible, anything you like, but at least it will be original).
