Yakov Kreizberg

Yakov Kreizberg, the conductor, has died at the age of 51. Since most of his career was outside the UK (although he conducted the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra)  he's not nearly as well known here as his brother Semyon Bychov. Since I don't like obituaries written like they've been cribbed off wikipedia, I've been looking for some that are personal. Thankfully, Stephen Hough has written something moving and sincere. Another worthy memorial is HERE on Evan Dickerson's blog, which always has things no-one else covers, and does it well.
