The aim of this thread is to collect links to obituaries of people.involved in the classical music world. They can be performers, conductors, composers, teachers, instrument makers - whatever.
One of the problems of posting such links is that sometimes they will be hidden behind paywalls. We subscribe to The Telegraph print edition and get a pass to their main site so don't always notice the problem.
