R.I.P. Prêtre a fine Brucknerian

We mourn the passing of Georges Prêtre at the age of 92.

Apart from his very fine operatic and French orchestral recordings, his two Bruckner recordings, of Symphonies No. 7 and No. 8, in his ripe golden age are impressive readings that will stay in my mind for a long time.

Rest in peace Maestro.
