David Pituch died June 23, 2020 after a long illness. He was 72.

It looks like he's barely been mentioned on the forum. He did a bunch of LP recordings (listed on Discogs) during his years in Poland teaching at the Chopin Conservatory in the 1980s, including a revival of the Roman Palester Concertino from 1938, a long-lost work that he re-discovered (it and other works appear on a CD David Pituch Plays Compositions for the Eb Alto Saxophone). He also appears on a couple of volumes of the America's Millennium Tribute to Adolphe Sax series of CDs. He received his Ph.D. from Northwestern and authored a book "Saksofon od A do Z" (Saxophone From A to Z).

There's a lengthy and interesting interview of David here: David Pituch Interview with Bruce Duffie . . . . . .
