The Cleveland Orchestra Joins the World in Mourning the Death of Lorin Maazel

The Cleveland Orchestra joins the world in mourning the death earlier today of Lorin Maazel, who served as The Cleveland Orchestra's fifth Music Director through a remarkable decade, 1972-82. He was a musician of exceptional and early talents, who had first appeared with the Orchestra in 1942, at age 12, as both conductor and violinist. Three decades later, he was chosen to be Cleveland's Music Director.

Through hundreds of concerts at home, during ten international tours, in radio broadcasts and on a series of acclaimed recordings, his leadership and imaginative programming and performances brought inspiration and joy to Cleveland Orchestra audiences around the world. His dynamic energy and acute insight brought fresh ideas to The Cleveland Orchestra's performances and presentations, and as an institution serving the art of music, the entire Northeast Ohio community, and beyond. His importance in our history will be forever remembered. We extend condolences and sympathy to his wife, Dietlinde Turban, and family and friends.
