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.
