Remembering Lorin Maazel, New York Philharmonic Music Director, 2002–09

Posted July 14, 2014

Lorin Maazel NY Philharmonic

The New York Philharmonic joins the musical community in deeply mourning the passing of Lorin Maazel (1930–2014), our brilliant and highly acclaimed Music Director, 2002–09.

The Philharmonic will dedicate its opening concert of this summer’s Bravo! Vail residency to Lorin Maazel, performing Barber’s Adagio for Strings, conducted by Music Director Alan Gilbert, in honor of the late conductor, composer, violinist, and friend of the Philharmonic. An additional dedication will take place in New York City in fall 2014; details will be announced at a later date.

Remembrances of Maestro Maazel's prodigious life and career can be found in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, NPR, and the Associated Press.
