I remember his idiomatic and thrilling performances of Sviridov’s Suite from The Snowstorm and Tchaikovsky’s First Symphony with the BBC Symphony Orchestra only last December. Further back, in the late 1990’s , I recall a passionate Swan Lake at Covent Garden for the Royal Ballet with Sylvie Guillem. A real loss.
