This week’s music is dedicated to the memory of the great Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink, who passed away a few hours ago at the age of 92. Haitink was the last of the great “record conductors” (conductors who recorded in the age of the record label), with over 400 records to his name. He was the conductor of the world-renowned Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam for nearly thirty years, as well as a guest conductor with every major orchestra in the world. He will be missed around the globe.
