Vale Lorin Maazel

The conductor Lorin Maazel has died at his home in Virginia aged 84.

“By his 11th birthday he had already shared a podium with Leopold Stokowski, while the no less legendary Arturo Toscanini was responsible for getting Maazel his first steady conducting job in 1942, when Maazel was only 12.”
