A concerto for Dougie

London musicians are mourning one of their own in a diversity of fashions, the usual mixtures of tears, beers and bittersweet reminiscences. Dougie Cummings, former principal cellist of the LSO who died this week, was in many ways a flag-bearer of the guild of London players.

His nephew, Damian Iorio, is a string player turned conductor.

Tonight, he’s conducting the world premiere of a cello concerto by David del Puerto in Valladolid, Spain.

Before the performance, Damian will dedicate the premiere to the memory of his uncle Dougie.
