For those who don't know yet: Kirill Pokrovsky, the man responsible for all of the fantastic music in Divine Divinity, Beyond Divinity, Divinity 2, Dragon Commander, and Divinity: Original Sin passed away yesterday.
Quick head's up: I edited the opening post w/ some videos from Larian's YouTube channel. Check 'em out.

A very sad loss indeed.
I know. I'm pretty damn picky about what music I like, what music I love, and there are very few modern musicians or composers that I really, genuinely adore: Yoko Kanno, Nobuo Uematsu, and Kirill Pokrovsky.
I know Larian re-purposed some older music for Divinity: Original Sin. I hope they continue to do so for future games, because a Divinity game without Kirill's music is no Divinity at all.
It's hard for me to say something, he accompanied my art pass time it's gone more than the gameplay time; a Master it's gone and sadly I'm not even able to express more. Rest in peace dear Master and thanks for every creation you made for all of us...
I just want to express my sadness at learning the news about Mr. Pokrovsky. I did not know him, but he was only 3 (three!) years older than me and June 1 was my birthday. The compositions of the Divinity series are a beautiful legacy to his musical gifts. My heart felt sympathies to his friends and family everywhere. Thank you.
