The great Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink died on October 21 at the age of 92. During his 65 years career he conducted many of the world's great orchestras, holding posts with Amsterdam's Concertgebouw Orchestra for 27 years, as well as the London Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Glyndebourne and the Royal Opera, and regularly guest conducting the Boston Symphony, the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, the Bavarian RSO, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and numerous others. He left over 450 recordings, and they provide the focus for this conversation between Gramophone's Editor in Chief, James Jolly, and the critic and broadcaster, and Gramophone reviewer, Rob Cowan.
