Mariss Jansons (1943-2019)
The Concertgebouworkest mourns the death of its beloved conductor emeritus, Mariss Jansons, last night in St.-Petersburg. Mariss Jansons was chief conductor of orchestra from 2004 to 2015, after which he returned several times as a guest conductor. The music world has lost not only a great conductor, but a warm and humble man. We send our deepest condolences to his wife Irina and his family.
