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

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 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.

Very sorry to hear that Oliver Knussen has died. I remember seeing his double bill of Higglety Pigglety Pop and Where the Wild Things Are at Glyndebourne in 1985. They were both superb.
