RE: Yes - that's a good one too! (His first recording for Chandos?) [nt]







I am very sorry to learn of his passing.

For us in the UK he was, of course, familiar through his tenure with the BBC SO. I recall thinking him rather prosaic when he took over but their relationship seemed to grow and flower as time went by. His time with them also resulted in some excellent recordings.

The current issue of Gramophone has a substantial article on him with a full page portrait which, given these circumstances, is quite moving. He is shown without any hair. So I guess that we may speculate as to what took him from us.
