  • He was a real gentleman and a pleasure to work with. I still have very fond memories of playing the Prokofiev Second Concerto under his baton in Nuremberg some 20 years ago.

  • Rest in peace. I played with him a few times (once as soloist on Sæverud’s Romanza) back in the late 80s/early 90s. A nice fellow and fine conductor.
