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.

I’m at a loss for words, the last 24 hours has been incredibly difficult for me and my family. Our heart is with Sonya. We will miss our Big Owl more than I can say. Thank you for all your messages so far, they mean the world.

When I wrote to a million years ago asking if there was a buyable score of Where The Wild Things Are, they told me it was a bit of a mess (bits lying about, not really assembled). Yet look at what there is: a beautiful, crystalline thing of lush detail.

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

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.

George Benjamin is so right when he says 'has had a fertilizing and energizing effect on the whole of British music for the last 40 years.' Oliver was a great conductor & also a strong advocate of new talent who will be sadly missed.
