Monday 14th, 2013, Sir Colin Davis, the great British conductor, passed away at 85.
My heart and thoughts are with his family, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden.
The world of classical music has lost one of the greatest orchestra conductors, not only of Great Britain but also of the entire world.
We all remember Sir Colin’s unforgettable interpretations of Mozart, Berlioz, Tippett and Sibelius.
He was London Symphony Orchestra’s longest serving principal conductor.
We all love, admire and remember Sir Colin Davis conducting such different wonders like the Hector Berlioz Requiem, Mozart’s”La Clemenza di Tito”, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, The Symphony Fantastique by Hector Berlioz, Handel’s “Messiah”, Berlioz’s “Les Troyens”, Verdi’s “Falstaff” and Haydn’s “Die Schöpfung (The Creation)”.
RIP Sir Colin Davis, thank you for all the wonderful things that you did for music, we will never forget you.
