The Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias in Spain buried its principal horn, Roberto Alvarez, today.

Roberto was 46. He had been ill for three months.

His was the third death this year in the orchestra, following the cellist Juan Carlos Cadenas and pianist Olga Semushina.

May Asturias be spared further sorrow.
