Let us pause to honor the memory of the great conductor Lorin Maazel, who died today at the age of 84. I heard him conduct on several occasions, and although some of his interpretations seemed so cerebral as to be contrived, others burned with a fire that made the music come alive in extraordinary fashion. He was certainly a man of great intellect and sought perfection in his undertakings on the podium.
