It was with considerable shock when I learned yesterday that Kevin had died. He was in his early forties. Kevin was my deputy editor for some years, adding photos to reviews and tweeting their links. He was an enthusiastic balletomane (I left him to edit Gerald Dowler’s dance reviews) as well as a keen opera-goer, and outside of music he taught Chemistry (the Borodin connection) at the City of London School for Boys where he was also Head of Careers.

Kevin will be much missed. I send condolences to his family, friends, and partner Philip.
