Arthur Magnus, grandson of the late conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, was buried on Friday in his home village, St. Georgen im Attergau, in Upper Austria.
An entertainment entrepreneur, Arthur was found dead on November 4 beneath the Williamsburg Bridge in New York, having apparently fallen while trying to climb the bridge.
We understand from eyewitnesses that he attended a wedding the previous evening in which guests were asked to wear fancy-dress costume. Arthur went as a character from Clockwork Orange. He appeared happy and normal at the wedding. Where he went afterwards is unknown.
