Sir Colin Davis — Conductor

Program notes

In 2012, just a year before his passing, Sir Colin Davis—president of the London Symphony Orchestra at the time and with over five decades of appearances with the prestigious ensemble—gets an affectionate look in this final video appearance, a documentary by Reiner E. Moritz. Alternating scenes from rehearsals, concerts, operas, master classes, and interviews, this portrait offers an invaluable insight into his charming and energetic personality both on and off the podium. It is clear throughout that the musical legend was also a great man, one who will long be remembered for his tireless commitment to music, both in England and abroad.
