Today conductor Claudio Abbado has died. To a friend of ours he was like a second grandfather, so he will be very missed, which makes us sad too. Therefore we are currently playing at the DANHUSER Org. headquarter his 1980 recording of Guiseppe Verdi’s ‘Requiem’ for Deutsche Grammophon. Read about his importance and abilities elsewhere, this is a personal note.
Claudio Abbado is dead, long live Claudio Abbado!
