Bernard Haitink, Mahler conducter, dies
« Reply #1 on: October 23, 2021, 09:50:18 PM »
The music on Ken's Mahler was conducted by Bernard Haitink. I saw Haitink conduct many times and he was one of the great conductors.  He was with the Dutch Concertgebouworkest for 65 (!) years, his first concert in 1939 (from NRC.NL 22 Oct 2021).  He was also conductor of the London Philharmonic from 1967- 1979 and the Royal Opera House London from 1987-2002.

He died on 21 Oct 2021 aged 92.  He will be missed and I will be playing all my Haitink CDs to remember him.  The image below is from the credits of Mahler
