We are saddened to hear of the death of Eve Edwards, formidable Executive Producer at Philips Classics who looked after Neville Marriner, Mitsuko Uchida and many more.
Take a look at her credits here.
A 1956 Hungarian refugees, she started out as recording c oordintor for A&R chief Erik Smith before working with Antal Dorati on the Haydn operas.
She then took charge of Rossini and early Verdi, leaving no note unturned.
Costa Pilavachi, last head of Philips, says: ‘Eve was spectacularly efficient, capable, unafraid of everybody and respected and liked by all.’
She is survived by her husband Philip.
