    Never met him, but he was a fantastic player.

  • Alan booth says:

    He will be missed, such a fabulous musician.

  • Chris says:

    He was also on the faculty of Indiana University in the late 80s and early 90s where I worked with him when I was a grad student. He was a fantastic teacher and a wonderful man. His solo in the recording of Afternoon of a Faun with LSO/Previn is the one I’ll always have in my ear.

    Try this…………I am sure Stokowksi would describe this playing as “wahnderfool”.
