Nickolaus Harnoncourt, a pioneer of the authentic or period instrument music movement, has died.

Here's an obituary from The Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/12185066/Nikolaus-Harnoncourt-conductor-obituary.html

Vale.

There's a guy who found a way to be different but not just for the sake of being different.


I suppose the pettiness/jealousy of Herbert von Karajan's noted in the article above is harder to get away with today now that classical music isn't quite the business it used to be.
