DEATHS ELSEWHERE

November 27, 1996

Edison Denisov,67, a Russian composer denounced -- and later awarded the title of renowned master of the arts -- by Soviet authorities, died Saturday in Paris.

He graduated from Moscow State Conservatory in 1956 and began teaching there four years later.

Over the next decade, he became a master of modern music. But Soviet newspapers derided him as an "upstart," "pseudo-innovator" and "person without talent."

He was forbidden to attend premieres of his work in European capitals.

As Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms parted the Iron Curtain, Mr. Denisov was awarded the title of renowned master of the arts in 1989.

Edmund Teske,85, a prolific and idiosyncratic photographer known for his romantic and mysterious images, died of a heart attack Friday in Los Angeles. His photographs were exhibited at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, Calif., and his architectural studies and ethereal montages have been purchased by major museums in Los Angeles and New York. Mr. Teske's work embraced the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright designs.
