Lorin Maazel dead at 84
« on: July 14, 2014, 02:45:58 PM »
Lorin Maazel's name graces the name of so many CDs in my collection.  THough some of his interpretations of many works, like the collected symphonies of Bruckner, were off the cuff when compared to someone like Furtwangler, Klemperer or even von Karajan, he was one of the most energizing conductors I had ever seen.  It was never a bore to listen to what he directed, though you may disagree with his interpretation.  I particularly enjoyed his Wagner without Words album, many of the arrangements he made himself.  A great loss for the music world.  Memory eternal.

Lorin Maazel, an intense and enigmatic conductor, dies at 84

Lorin Maazel, a former child prodigy who went on to become the music director of the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Vienna State Opera and several other ensembles and companies around the world, and who was known for his incisive and sometimes extreme interpretations, died on Sunday at his home in Castleton, Va. He was 84.

Memory eternal.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Memory eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

May his memory be eternal.

Lord have mercy on him and grant him eternal rest.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
