Colin Davis

Sir Colin Davis, whose contribution to the musical world went well beyond being a conductor, died yesterday at the age of 85.

As an arranger, his string orchestra version of Beethoven’s Quartet in C# minor, op. 131 (which is in the Weinberger catalogue) has received performances by orcestras and ensembles the world over.

One of the last of the old guard, his presence on the podium will be sorely missed!
