    President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos on Monday sent a telegram conveying his condolences to the family of recently deceased Greek composer Ianis Xenakis, whom he described as a major figure in music and the arts and letters.

    Stephanopoulos said that Xenakis had honoured both his countries, Greece and France, through his work.

    Condolences were also sent to the family by Prime Minister Costas Simitis, who wrote in his telegram that the world of the arts, letters and culture were the poorer for his loss.

    "The death of Ianis Xenakis, this modern thinker of musical creation, innovator and ground-breaking academic, artist and cosmopolitan is a great loss for the wider, international, cultural 'family'."
