R. I. P. Yakov Kreizberg

Posted at 4:41 PM on March 17, 2011 by Rex Levang (2 Comments)

The conductor Yakov Kreizberg died earlier this week; he was only 51. Many in our area will remember him, from his frequent appearances with the Minnesota Orchestra--in fact, he was apparently a serious contender to become the Orchestra's music director.

Tony Woodcock, the Orchestra's former president, leaves these warm and at times humorous reminiscences.

LATER: Thanks for the keen eyes--corrections now in place!
