A pioneering Greek conductor has died

Louly Psichouli, the first Greek woman to achieve an international conducting career, died on October 29.

A student of Hans Swarowksy in Vienna, Louly conducted at the Bolshoi in Mosow and many orchestras across the Balkans, as well as playing a prominent role in Greek musical life. In 1974 she founded the Maria Callas Grand Prix to support young artists.
