Today’s concert at the Castleton Festival went ahead, despite the death of its founder. The concert, dedicated to the memory of Lorin Maazel, featured the great flautist, who first played in his orchestras, in London and Berlin, half a century ago. Most of the programme was music by Maazel. The conductors were graduates of his seminar.
