The photographer Godfrey MacDomnic has died, aged 84.
He was a quiet figure in the EMI studios, often unnoticed by artists by capturing them in photographs that were both historic and iconic. He worked for many years with Lebrecht Music&Arts and we deeply regret his passing. Announcement follows.
Godfrey MacDomnic will be remembered for his iconic photos of the 1960s and 1970s ‘greats’ in classical music: in particular, Jacqueline du Pré at her peak playing the Elgar cello concerto; Stravinsky conducting; Adrian Boult musing; Sir Malcolm Sargent at the Proms; the dynamic young Daniel Barenboim; and the anguished Tennstedt.
