The 33-year leader of Tafelmusik has died of cancer.

She leaves an enormous recorded legacy with Tafelmusik, and recently left the orchestra itself in the hands of a successor, Elisa Citterio. (Yes, Tafelmusik has been led by women for 40 years - sadly still a remarkable exception in today's musical landscape.)

That is very sad news indeed. She leaves a very fine legacy behind her. RIP.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.
