On right now talking to three years ago about his ‘perfected’ works and being a decade late with some of his commissions. Now on Knussen’s teenaged music which Knussen calls ‘Walton-y Shostakovich-y music’

After a spellbinding performance of his last completed masterpiece, O Hototogisu! w. Claire Booth, Marie-Christine Zupancic & , Olly Knussen said to the audience: ”So many people onstage, and such short piece, we’re going to play it again. Total egoism.” ❤️

I will never forget the day when I gave a lift to and helped him into my little car. Can’t remember whether he put the seat belt on... 🙂 A giant of a man, a top, witty bloke, a super musician. Sadly missed.

I know I’m not the only one hurting today, and I’m sharing my sorrows and sympathies with them over this man who was, and I’m not exaggerating here, my favorite human. Vale dear (Mr K; O’Knussen, etc) . You loved many with ease and generosity, and are loved today.

So deeply saddened by the passing of Olly Knussen. A composer with such unique voice and a conductor with impeccable ear for every detail. 💔

Through shared enthusiasm for that I got to know in the last 90s, resulted in the only performance of Foss’ work at in 2000. Since then, we always greeted each other with ‘How dolly to vada your dolly old eek!’. I’m going to miss that.
