This morning the death of conductor Mariss Jansons was announced. Very sad news. I remember his Vienna New Year concerts

It's not been a good time for the classical music world just recently - too many losses :( 

 

I'm greatly saddened by the loss of this conductor in particular - but at the same time immensely grateful for the more than two decades' borrowed time he was able to go on living, and producing his music, after the heart attack that by all accounts ought to have killed him.  After that, I made sure never to miss a concert programme of his in London, just in case, and his performances have formed many of the highlights of my concert-going life: in fact, what I think was his penultimate one here was one I described as "Superb. Absolutely superb. One of the best live concerts I've ever attended."

 

My deepest sympathies to his family, colleagues and all those who loved him.
