That's sad to hear, and strange timing in as much as only a couple of weeks ago I decided to look into the life of this person who had been so instrumental (forgive the pun)..

He did indeed have quite a career, and it's weird to think that he never met Prince in person. In fact that's downright odd...it's not like they just did one track together.

From the first Cadence of Christopher Tracey's Parade, my eyes opened up to an entire new way of thinking musically. Then I found: Ask Rufus, Destiny and most notably Paprika Plains by Joni and I was spellbound......

This is a mind and spirit that I will miss incredibly.....

peace

Nice to see someone else give 'Paprika Plains' some love....Don Juan's Reckless Daughter is my absolute favorite album.

Very sad news....

RIP Clare who I also thought was a women for many years until the org cleared that up for me.

His music brought magic to many many Prince songs..a few of my favorites include:

Pink Cashmere

Te Amo Corozon

All of Parade

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

RIP. A great talent. Prince's music is all the better for Clare Fischer's involvement.

Definitely Pink Cashmere...

Very sad news indeed. His contribution to Prince's sound is immense and intrinsic. I love what he added to Prince's music, and there's often a track that you'd think 'I think this would be better with some strings' - and not just any strings, it'd have to be a Clare Fischer arrangement.

Reading his credit on Prince liners was as tantalising as those immortal produced, arranged, composed and performed by credits.

I'm sure it will help his family to know how much his music touched so many.

He lived a long and amazing life... all of us should be so lucky.

In my musical naivete I used to credit everything in Prince's music to Prince. And I always loved the melancholic string arrangements added to many of his songs.

His input on Prince's catalogue is immeasurable and he will be missed.

Big loss, can you imagine Parade without the woodwinds in Life can Be So Nice, here we had a classical guy who was just as brilliantly mad as our little funkster and could match the quirkiness, I seriously doubt anyone else in his world could do that as well, it was fated. RIP and thank you.

His solo works were amazing too. He was a real talent. I loved almost everything he did with Prince. He made some of the most beautiful string arrangements I've ever heard. He was a big inspiration to me & he will be missed...... pray

This was very interesting - you could see what a consummate professional he was. I love that there's people who take their work seriously, LOVE what they do, and take pride in their craft. I liked when he talked about the singer who also played bunch of instruments, how that made him a better singer, and Clare Fischer called him a "complete musician." Of course, I also liked when the interviewer asked how Prince was as a musician, and Clare said "he's sick!" lol He said earlier in the interview that he liked working for/with people who just give him the song to put on the orchestrations as he sees fit, since that's his expertise, and I remember from somewhere that that's what Prince did. The example of "I Wonder U" was really good - just the vocals & bass and rhythm pattern, then Clare put on that amazing orchestration.

He will be missed.

I was just listening to Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan, and looking at my album cover today, happened to flip to the back of it and saw Clare Fischer did the string arrangements for it. What timing.

I wonder if he did the arrangement at the start of 'The Ladder'? That just popped into my head - such a mature and fitting sound, it gave real gravitas to the start of that song.

Thank you Bart for the link. Clare sure had a sense of humor. I admire that in a person. Would I could achieve that in my life, it has seemed like a lot of "work" lately. We have to bear our burdens lightly, or they will overwhelm us.
