I am very sorry to learn that Fred has left us. I had the pleasure of meeting him some years ago at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios in London when he was recording Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Cello Concerto with his brother Leonard Slatkin conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra for the following film. My condolences to Leonard and his family.

The Concerto feature starts about twenty-six minutes in. Fred & Leonard’s performance from the forty-four mark.
