Maestro Rafael Nadal died yesterday on Majorca, his home island, at the age of 86.
He founded and directed the chorus of the Teatre Principal in Palma and taught for 40 years at the music school in Manacor. His proudest moment was conducting a professional performance of Beethoven’s ninth symphony.
He was also happy to share the limelight with his tennis champion grandson, who has been playing in the US Open.
