RIP Wyn Morris (1929-2010)
(The 'Celtic Furtwangler' conducts a reconstruction of Beethoven's unfinished 10th Symphony, yes - there is a tenth..)
The obituaries are kind of shocking, and they read like a cautionary tale for any conductor trying to make it in today's (more) democratic world. Morris was an artist of enormous talent brought down by behavior that in generations past was considered completely acceptable.
